Lowered down like a casket
And buried just below her chest.
"Whatever I was searching for,
It was never you," she says.
The record ended long ago,
We go on dancing nonetheless.

I opened like a locket,
"If you're ever cold," I wrote,
"There's warmth inside me.
I'm the pocket of an old winter coat."
But where she used to say "I need you."
Now, "I don't."

You'd only make the softest sound,
Like sugar pouring into tea.
Darling let your Self pour down
And dissolve into the Love
Who revealed himself there quietly to me...

(Jesus have mercy on us.)

Secret Song

You might sleep, but you'll never dream
Onward! Progress! Or so it seems.
You might laugh, but you'll never smile.
Come on in and waste away awhile.

My stomach swears there's comfort there
In the warmth of the blankets on your bed
My stomach's always been a liar-
I'll believe it's lies again.

No use in saying how I'm sorry
So I'm trying not to speak
I'll sing in silence, as I lay beside you
My face against your warm cheek

When dreams of rings of flowers fade and blur
Giving way to that familiar ill
Come over and part your soft white curtains
Where I'm waiting for you still

No use in saying how I'm sorry
So I'm trying not to speak
I'll sing in silence, as I lay beside you
