lyrics

born as a child
with nothing to learn
firefly in amber
a stone that burns
sprit to dust
and matter to light
tragedy's howling
and i'm safe inside
if i'm alone
as i've been told
i've no need for shelter
or the baring of my soul
eight hours a day
i work for that love
with a back old and broken
keeping on the job

i saw your star
i heard your dream
and i didn't touch nothing
not offered up to me
but you ran down the lie
just to see what it was
mother of millions
trusts the telling of

can you be still?
will i be there?
sow a little sorrow
i'll harvest you my share
the death of my heat
a patch for the sail
shadows for sundials
the shell that held a snail

my heart leapt to you
like crossing a stream
and the blood in the beating
the forest evergreen
i don't know love
but i know what i like
lost in the living
listening for the light

in gloria
