The Chorus Goes Like

Let me take you in your sleep
Carry you on silken wings
Dreams of time and magic places
Sink your soul in untold phases

Cup your chin between my hands
Trace the veins of toughened lands
Unseen, untold, whisper my name
I’ll come for you again

For the chorus goes like this, like this
Never changing shapes to match our lips
See the string of words escape our mouths
Empty, where instead the music should come out

Come with me to the ships
The ships that sway upon the waves
In there wake lays our escape
The sharks can’t swim, we’re not too late

In our castle we will stay
Safe from speed of sound and light
We’ll arrange the stars to match our fates
Like an unwritten story we shall wait

The chorus goes like this, like this
Never changing shapes to match our lips
See the string of words escape our mouths
Empty, where instead the music should come out

We’ll sit in silence in the fields
Watch others play with swords and shields
Keep our feet straight in the air
Catch the wind without our cares

Never chang-ing shapes,
Where the music should come out
See the str-ing of words,
Emptily escape our mouths
