lyrics

THE COLORS OF DYING

Black heart
a hollow vexing


Long dark road
in the fall of longing


A clipped wing crow
a siren's calling


Black heart 

a hollow vexing


Solitary bird that flies at night,
death of autumn leaves
now taking flight



Silver moon

the light comes piercing


Steel bright blue,
like a scalpel's wounding



The thought of you,
in the light of morning


Autumn hues
in the colors of dying


My heart a solitary bird
that flies at night

*Break this darkened will
until it bleeds some light




Artist note: this line (*) probably influenced unintentionally by Bruce Cockburn's "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" and/or Leonard Cohen's "Anthem."
