soothe my longing, ease my pain
wrap your heart around my spine
drop some tears, indulge my crime
grip what's left with your bare hands
put to sleep, the star shall smolder
steady and ever cease to glow
and who would care to take a bow
to a pale rock, a feeble boulder?
there is no guilt in inviting in
another light, some other rhymes,
bring some flesh back to the skin
soothe my longing, easy my pain
fill my lungs just one more time
will we ever feel again?
