It’s been so long
sad and freezing
middle of the childhood night
gazing at stars and the opal moon
my only companion
the obscure shadow
painting patterns in the void
at the window

Was it really me
dying in the winter frost
as the sky cracked its heart
like shards of ancient glass?

Here I go: this one’s for death
and horrors of a child’s neglect
‘I’m cold . . .’ he cries
with no mother near to hear him

+ ‘Save your dreams’

It’s been so long
I must fight for life
I must get the hell out of here
I must start my heart
I’ve been dead so long
and lying like a statue . . .

+ ‘Save your dreams’ (ad lib)

Part 2

‘Oh my God . . .’

You old . . . you old . . . are you old?
It doesn’t matter what they say
It doesn’t matter what they think
You are, you are, you are your soul
And only you can save your dreams

+ ‘Save your dreams’ (ad lib)


from Learning to See, released April 18, 2011
