lyrics

At the station the trains departing On the morning I have to leave Every car is a hall of mirrors Every person is shapeshifting

What I see in you, what you are to me is what a tightrope walker sees within a spool of string All the passion that unravels from a simple thing

In each place longing crosses latitudes I’ll tie a knot for tracing back to you Slipped round my finger as I fade from view

We move inside the train that moves outside of us Put ourselves willingly into its forward thrust And time’s already planning our platters of locusts The substance of forgetting, the substance of letting go

Our potential’s a phoenix rising One last song to its ashen bed Our potential’s a helix spinning New beginnings at every end

What I see in you, what you are to me is what a tightrope walker sees within a spool of string All the passion that unravels from a simple thing
