lyrics

written autumn '11

I heard you whisper
like a chanted speech
you spoke from a place beneath
your chin, your skin
I was a dream you sought to live in
a fantasy of green and comparison
to what is and what could be in reality

I heard you whisper
as if your unheard words
could purge purgatory
and when I think of the way you love me
and the man you’re afraid to be
for me
I was a dream you sought to live in
a fantasy of green and comparison
to what is and what could be in reality

I’d rather see the dust settle than myself
and I’d rather love you than someone else
because together we’re best
when our words digest and resonate in our chest
like a whisper
