You came to me with fire inside
Your movements and your pride
And asking to be rescued from
The pain you had become
I tore apart the prison and I hid you in my hand
In the blue light of christmas-time santa claus was kind
I wonder if you'll ever grow
Oh far enough to throw
Away the lies of no and yes
And love my quietness
Or will you only freeze and frown and lose what you have found?
In the white light of easter seas'n will you live again?
Today the coin is in the air
And we are here and there
And where and when have caught us in
The web of violence
I pray to all the world as one that day will bring the sun
In the scarlet light of valentine's our paper hearts are blind.
Tim Buckley Valentine Melody Lyrics
