lyrics

the blackout street has been dreaming about you,
wondering when you're coming by.
me, i don't know what to do
but stand apart and sigh.

my heart thrills to the secret
all your creatures seem to know;
i glimpse its back in the windows
of the places i can't go.

a streetlamp nests in the crown of a tree
all glowing golden veined,
arms outstretched toward the mystery
the world cannot contain.

oh! to be swept up like Elijah
to the bleeding heart of things,
rising on a chandelier
of burning seraph's wings.

wake with a shock and some relief
that the tired old world's still there.
traffic murmurs in the street,
a rote and endless prayer.

years of fear and longing
left me something that i'm not,
but show me a death worth dying
and i'll give it all i've got.
i'll give it all i've got.
