A trip across the river

27 October 05

You’re going to need this for your trip across the river
The ferry’s weighted down with rags and gold
Although you’ve tried with every heartbeat to forgive her
You’re going to need this for your trip across the river

You’re going to need this when you walk towards your lover
Your candle trailing ribbons through the dark
It took you thirty lifetimes to discover
You’re going to need this when you walk towards your lover

I’m coming home

You’ll say “My darling one I know you must be weary
I know the days weigh heavy on your soul
I have brought something to ease your precious burden
My darling one, I know you must be weary.”

I’m coming home

You ache to feel again the love you now only remember
When a glance could take an arrow from your heart
But the deed you have performed renders your soul unto the other
You’ll never feel again what you remember
