Pulse

My bones whisper to my blood,
This night’s a dolphin of moss.
I feel my slow veins warm,
But sleep leaves me alone,
I fold into stone.

I want to breathe again,
I want to feel your pulse,
I want to breathe again,
I want to feel your pulse,
Where shadows start
Here in the dark,
I want to feel your pulse.

Like fire, your touch still burns,
And your eyes braid me like ribbons.
I’m washed in your words of foam,
As stars hide in the sky’s dome,
In you I rest my soul.

I want to breathe again,
I want to feel your pulse,
I want to breathe again,
I want to feel your pulse,
Where shadows start
Here in the dark,
I want to feel your pulse.

Pain is the only promise,
You made to me,
But if I have to cross a thousand seas,
To be with you,
I will, before I sleep.

I want to breathe again,
I want to feel your pulse,
I want to breathe again,
I want to feel your pulse,
Where shadows start
Here in the dark,
I want to feel your pulse.

[Spoken]

The taste of you,
The echo of your name,
Your eyes,
As we sail,
Into the land of flames
In a boat that fades
Known yet strange,
I want to feel your pulse –
Again,
Yes again,
Yet again.
