Sarah, love’s been in exile
Been out a long while
Who’ll take it in?
Seems to be hiding
Tomorrow’s abiding where it’s always been:
In the loneliness that gives the bird his song
In the longing to which we both belong-
Feeling, blinding as break of day
By and by lights the way hidden by the night.
Is it loneliness that gives the bird his song?
Is it longing to which we both belong?
Straight as the line of dawn
May your heart be filled with song
The song of you.
Damn this dust
Damn this clay
You can’t hold it it all blows away
Blown away now- what to do?
Say the words
Sing the songs
You’re a captive but baby not for long
When these trials cease to be
Desire will set you free
