lyrics

in her silver dress
[06_17_10]

we can sail away
lift our arms into the night
with your crescent eye
lazy like the distant morning light

so speak to me from the shallow of your breath
whisper dreams while you dance in your silver dress

steady like a prayer
frozen in time behind scared eyes
frozen and alone
your silhouette carves the night sky

so speak to me from the shallow of your breath
while you dance with my dreams in your silver dress

so take me away
and show me where the stars fall to the ground
my wishes scattered around like loose change
i want to sail to the edge and look down into the night
so dark
except for you

we can drift away
push off from the nearest star
constellation lines
drawn in our wake from afar

so speak to me from the shallow of your breath
while i slip between you and your silver dress

so take me away
and show where the stars fall to the ground
my wishes scattered around like loose change
i want to sail to the edge and look down into the night
so dark
yet so bright

oh, dear
i’m so cold
please pick me up and take me in
your beauty warms deep within
my soul
i’m alive
