Lyrics

Hidden Place
05:29
Through the warmthest cord of care
Your love was sent to me
I'm not sure what to do with it
Or where to put it
I'm so close to tear
And so close to
Simply calling you up
And simply suggesting

We go to that hidden place...

Now, I have been slightly shy
But I can smell a pinch of hope
To almost have allowed once fingers
To stroke
The fingers I was given to touch with
But careful careful
There lies my passion hidden
there lies my love
I'll hide it under a blanket
Lull it to sleep

I'll keep it in a hidden place...

He's the beautifullest, fragilest, still strong
Dark and divine
And the littleness of his movements
Hides himself
He invents a charm that makes him invisible
Hides in the hair
Can I hide there too?
Hide in the hair of him
Seek solace
Sanctuary

In that hidden place...
Cocoon
04:28
Who would have known that a boy like him
Would have entered me lightly restoring my blisses
Who would have known that a boy like him
after sharing my core would stay going nowhere

Who would have known a beauty this immense
Who would have known a saintly trance
Who would have known: miraculous breath
inhales a beard loaded with courage

Who would have known that a boy like him
possessed of magical sensitivity
Would approach a girl like me who carresses
cradles his head in a bosom

He slides inside
Half awake half asleep
We faint back into sleephood
When I wake up the second time in his arms
gorgeousness: he's still inside me!!!!

...?...Who would have known...?...

A train of pearls, cabin by cabin is shot precisely across an ocean
From a mouth... from a mouth...
from a mouth of a girl like me to a boy... to a boy... to a boy
It's Not Up to You
05:09
I wake up
And the day feels broken
I tilt my head
Try to get an angle
The evening I've always longed for
It could still happen

How do i master
The perfect day
Six glasses of water
Seven phonecalls

If you leave it alone it might just happen
Anyway

It's not up to you
Well it never really was...

If you wake up
And the day feels broken
Just lean into the crack
And it will tremble ever so nicely
Notice how it sparkles down there

I can decide what I give
But it's not up to me
What I get given

Unthinkable surprises about to happen
But what they are

It's not up to you
Well it never really was...

There is too much clinging to peak
There is too much pressure
Undo
05:38
It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

You're trying too hard
Surrender
Give yourself in
You're trying too hard

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

It's warmer now
Lean into it
Unfold in a generous way
Surrender

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

I'm praying
To be
In a generous mode
The kindness kind
To share me
Quietly ecstatic

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

Undo if you're bleeding undo
If you're sweating undo
If you're crying undo

Undo
Pagan Poetry
05:15
Pedalling through the dark currents
I find an accurate copy
A blueprint
Of the pleasure in me

Swirling black lilies totally ripe

He offers a handshake
Crooked five fingers
Form a pattern
Yet to be matched

Swirling black lilies totally ripe

A secret code carved
In a palm of fingers
Form a pattern
Yet to be matched

Swirling black lilies totally ripe

Morsecoding signals
Pulsate
Wake me up
From hibernate

On the surface simplicity
But the darkest pit in me
Is pagan poetry
Pagan poetry

I love him

This time
I'm gonna keep me to myself
This time
I'm gonna keep my all to myself

She loves him

But he makes me want to
Hand myself over

She loves him

Aurora
04:39
Treading the glacier head
Looking hard for moments of shine
From twilight to twilight
Heading for the sublime

Aurora goddess sparkle
Shoot me beyond this suffer
The need is great
Aurora

Aurora goddess sparkle
A mountain shadow
Suggests your shape
I fill my mouth with snow
The way it melts
I wish to melt before you

Aurora goddess sparkle

Spark the sun off
Spark the sun off
An Echo, a Stain
04:04
She touched my arm and smiled
One of these days soon
Very soon
Love you til then love you til then
Feel my breath on your neck
And your heart will race
Don't say no to me
You can't say no to me
I won't see you denied

I'm sorry you saw that
I'm sorry he did it
An echo
A stain...
A stain...

I can't say no to you

Say nothing

Freefalling

Complete
Sun in My Mouth
02:40
I will wade out till my thighs
Are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
And leap into the ripe air alive
With closed eyes
To dash against darkness
In the sleeping curves of my body
I shall enter fingers of smooth mastery
With chasteness of seagulls
Will I complete the mystery of my flesh
Heirloom
05:12
I have a recurrent dream
Every time I lose my voice
I swallow little glowing lights
My mother and son baked for me
During the night
They do a trapeze walk
Until they're in the sky
Right above my bed
While I'm asleep
My mother and son pour into me
Warm glowing oil
Into my wide open throat

I have a recurrent dream
Every time i feel a hoarseness
I swallow warm glowing lights
My mother and son baked for me

They make me feel better
They make me feel better

We have a recurrent dream
Everytime we lose our voices
We dream we swallow little lights
Our mother and sons bake for us
During the night
They do a little trapeze walk
Until they're in the sky
Right above our heads
While we're asleep
Our mothers and sons pour into us
Warm glowing oil
Into our wide open throats

I have a recurrent dream...
Harm of Will
04:37
If there's a troubador washing
It is he
If there's a man about town
It is he
If there's one to be sought
It is he
If there are nine shes
They are bought for me

This way is as is she
And he placed her unclothed longlegged
On top of the family tree

And if he has chosen the point while she is under him
Then leave her coily placed crouched sucking him
For it is I
With her on knee

I leave her without pith or feel
And leave her be
Leave her be for he controls what there'll be
He makes his face known to none
For if he is seen then all will
And all will know
Know me
Unison
06:48
One hand loves the other so much on me

Born stubborn me
Will always be
Before you count
1 2 3
I will have grown my own private branch
Off this tree

You gardener you
Discipliner domestically
I can obey all of your rules
And still be me

I never thought I would compromise

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's unite tonight

I thrive best hermit-style
With a beard and a pipe
And a parrot on each side
Now I can't do this without you

I never thought I would compromise

Let's unite tonight...

One hand loves the other so much on me

Let's unite tonight...
