about

The Star:
hope. spirituality. renewal. inspiration.

lyrics

In his shining face you see a star-like freedom
for the instance of a shooting star
you see each other seeing the other
in stillness, in wonder
before the inevitable decay

it dissolves from the tail forwards
that shining tadpole runs like prey into the black hole
as time chases its perfect little head into black oblivion

we are not left with the resolve of death
just the memory of perfection and the knowledge of rest

theres only one way for this to go
and that is out into the felt-tip hills before me
layered and crossing
in topographic longing, I
see us kissing in the mouths of two rivers meeting
thumb-tacs pin our silken bodies to the earth
but our spirits kick like wind under sheets
baby, your cloth clung to the bony ridges of me

wherever you go, offer this love
to the original keepers
whose hands are made big enough to keep it

In his shining face you see a star-like freedom
for the instance of a shooting star
you see each other seeing the other
in stillness, in wonder
before the inevitable decay
it dissolves from the tail forwards
that shining tadpole runs like prey into the black hole
as time chases its perfect little head into black oblivion

you become that shooting star
lighting up the blank space in my heart
i wish i may, i wish i might
get the wish i wish tonight...
