give me your hands, 'cause you're wonderful
When you ate I saw your eyelashes

Saw them shake like wind on rushes

In the corn field when she called me

Moths surround me - thought they'd drown me



And I miss your precious heart...



Dried rose petal, red-brown circles

Framed your eyes and stained your knuckles



And all those lonely nights down by the river

Brought me bread and water (water, in)

But though I tried so hard, my little darling

I couldn't keep the night from coming in



And all those lonely nights down by the river

I was brought my bread and water by the kith and the kin

Now in the quiet hour when I am sleepin'

I cannot keep the night from comin' in



Why've you gone away, gone away again?

I'll sleep through the rest of my days

If you've gone away again



Sleep through the rest of my days...



Why've you gone away, away?

Seven suns, seven suns

Away, away, away, away



Can you hear me? Will you listen?

Don't come near me, don't go missing

In the lissome light of evening

Help me, Cosmia, I'm grieving



And all those lonely nights down by the river

Brought me bread and water (water, in)

But though I tried so hard, my little darling

I couldn't keep the night from coming in



And all those lonely nights down by the river

I was brought my bread and water by the kith and the kin

Now in the quiet hour when I am sleepin'

I cannot keep the night from comin' in



Beneath the porch light, we've all been circling

Beat our dust hearts, singe our flour wings

But in the corner, something is happening!

Wild Cosmia, what have you seen?



Water were your limbs, and the fire was your hair

And then the moonlight caught your eye

And you rose through the air

Well, if you've seen true light, then this is my prayer:

Will you call me when you get there?



And I miss your precious heart

And miss, and miss, and miss

And miss, and miss, and miss

And miss, and miss your heart

But release your precious heart

To its feast, for precious hearts
