Dear Love believe me I once had a name

Of a sleight disposition

Of gravity’s game

When you release me I gather my shape

In the form you remember

That's what I take

 

You'll wake alone, on a day

Not like this - rearranged

Somehow old, somehow new

Rising up, this is true

Sympathetic to the human cause

Symptomatic of the other laws

Prophetic in the singer’s eyes

Is there no way out

Are there no more lies

 

Oh Dear Love Redeemer the lights from the stage

Cast a shadow behind you where I could be saved

Speak to me softly, steady my gaze

What is loss but remembered

By lovers, by fate.

Dear Love Redeemer I once had a name

I was all but defeated, by shadows and shade

I came from the mountains, to shelter the saints

Through the lights through the lightening

One and the same

 

Oh Dear Love Redeemer the lights from the stage

Cast a shadow behind you where I could be saved

Speak to me softly, steady my gaze

All is lost but remember

We're lovers by fate

 

 

You'll wake alone, on a day

Not like this - rearranged

What is it you're waiting for?

What is it you found?

Searching on the butcher's floor

Scratching at the ground

 

What is it you came here for

In the middle of the night?

You might as well get comfortable

It's neither fight or flight

 

'Cause you're so high, so high that I can't see you

Not eye, to eye not in this crowded room

'Cause I'm so high, so high that I can't see you

Not eye to eye for the wax on our wings is melting through

 

This is not a late night call

This is something sweet

Not a thing to take

But lay upon your feet

 

What is it you played me for?

What is it you seek?

Am I just a sailor's son

that cannot seem to sleep?

'Cause I'm so high, so high that I can't see you

Not eye, to eye not in this crowded room

'Cause you're so high, so high that I can't see you

Not eye to eye for the wax on our wings is melting through

 

You were at the corner of the years

You were in a war that no-one ever wins

You were falling out with someone new

You were calling out that day:

"This is how we lost our way"

 

'Cause I'm so high, so high that I can't see you

Not eye, to eye not in this crowded room

'Cause you're so high, so high that I can't see you

Not eye to eye for the wax on our wings is melting through

 

Can we leave now

Can we leave now

Can we leave before the world returns and all is lost

 

Can we leave now

Can we leave now

Can we leave before the world returns and all is lost in you

Don't forgive me,

I was only half awake

and I was drifting

Through a heartbreak of mistakes

 

Don't forgive me,

these are choices that we make

and I am dearly

Searching for a space

'Cause I've little pieces I could never replace

 

Don't forgive me,

I was only half awake

and I was drifting

Through a heartbreak of mistakes

 

I loved you too late and I

can't seem to follow The Way

Some soldier screaming at night

that this is all I can take

Don't let them come for me

But now don't, don't, don't, don't forgive me

"Heaven's too far away

to crawl up there alone" she said

"Forgiveness finds a way

to all that live to pass the day

But while you were sleeping

I was fading away"

I loved you too late and I

Can't seem to follow The Way

Some soldier screaming at night

That this is all I can take

Don't let them come for me

But now don't, don't, don't, don't forgive me

 

I found you surrounded

by all these thoughts in counting

I see her, Redeemer,

Return the boxer bound and

Believe me, I'll leave here,

without the words to begin

Forgiveness, we're even,

it's time that I was leavin'

So forgive me/Don't forgive me

I loved you too late and I

I loved you too late and I

I loved you too late and I

Can't seem to follow The Way

I loved you too late and I

Can't seem to follow The Way

Some soldier screaming at night

That this is all I can take

Don't let them come for me

And now don't, don't, don't, don't forgive me

The soldiers taught you to burn

What can you say about those little flying embers

Well I'm sure that it must've hurt

I'm sure that somewhere

You were on the back of everything and

Back and forward as you were

The little seesaw of a million different hurts but darlin'

 

Don't blame them

Don't blame them love

For you are not alone

You are my heart and soul

Do what you can for the world

This aint a question

It's a lot of sole decisions and I'm

Sure that you would've known

There aint a lot to leave behind you when you go so darlin'

 

Don't blame them

Don't blame them love

For you are not alone

You are my heart and soul

 

For you are not alone

You are my heart and soul

The day's long, and the nights go on

I can still remember the first song

I wrote from the name of

Every bodies ghost just before you were gone.

 

And you're so wrong to walk on

Every lover's prayer, every other psalm

You wrote the wrong name on

The letter that was lost to the war that I won

 

I want to go somewhere they don't know my name

I want to be somebody else just for a day

And it's the only thought that ever keeps me sane

Now do you want to leave or do you love me anyway

 

I never got a break from the seven cities

I was always on a plane somewhere else

So we both know what the cards show

This is not a home, that is not a role

 

I want to go somewhere they don't know my name

I want to be somebody else just for a day

And it's the only thought that ever keeps me sane

Now do you want to leave or do you love me anyway

 

Step closer, I wanna know ya

Step closer, I wanna know ya

Step closer, I wanna are you wave or are you an ocean?

Dearest, come and find me

I am somewhere else

Longing for defining

Always on the shelf

 

There is no-one else here

In this crowded room

I'll wait another hour

But then what am I to do?

 

Hear it pulsing quietly

Coming in the rain

There is no-one else

To become insane

If I ever hurt you

I was not aware

 

And all, and all my loves are there

For there is a place I heard

The lights so bright they also burn

 

Nearly falling forward

Through the lights now, through the door

If I erase my only lover then you must, you must

Hear this in the call of

every other fall

Though I fight now for another

If I ever hurt you

I was not aware

 

And all, and all my loves are there

For there is a place I heard

The lights so bright they also burn
