Caught red
Stripped hard
The way they told it
It’s colder now that
Time has come and gone

With this last one
Fantasy is undone
Mystery will die
Like we die

I’ll call you

Eyes shut, no sound
Pasts lost, now found
Colder now and
Closer than before, before, before
I fought the cold
But I’ll call you

No healer
For the unbeliever
Let him go

Morning never found you
Quiet now, barely breathing
Won’t hear a sound

I’ll call you

Laid in lover’s arms
Cool, these arms
Frail arms
Grievous arms

With this last one
Fantasy is undone
Colder now and
Closer than before

Ice and
Snow face
Frozen live in time
And in space

Who’d have thought her
Voice would sweeten like a sore?
I would disappear from you
You run from me

So, shoulder fortune
Like a childhood toy
Then turn around and go

Times you lied to me
Times I’ve lied to you
Shine the light on me
Shine the light on me

All is open wide
Soul knows no deprival
Whispers on the wind go on
You shall not leave a light on

Stolen past the gate
Cape Girardeau
Cape Girardeau
