THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY
Wait for me underneath the tree,
Where you saw me in your deep, deep sleep.
Lovers eyes, searching through the skies
For a perfect place to dream.
Look, look see how they're killing me,
But you just can't hear how loud I scream.
Clouds will break and the whole earth shakes
And the trees will clap their hands
Is there anyone beside me, hold my hand and somehow hide me, Hold your breath and look inside me,
Silhouettes fade to black.
Looking for a key to open, falling through a sky unbroken,
Looking for a word once spoken,
Before the earth was born.
When the sun comes up, when the sun goes down,
Keep me from the ghosts that hunt me down.
This whole world is a shadow of deeper magic that will be.
Angels crowd round to see the signs
And to watch in awe as the world unwinds.
Branches bend, with the seeds they send for a forest yet to come.
I have seen through a glass darkly,
I have seen through a glass darkly.
