lyrics

This song was one of the first ever written - I think EV was only about 15 when she started it. The first and third verses were based on a dream, and the second verse was heard in a dream after writing!


Your bones in my hands start to fracture and break
the sounds of the dawning, the scent of the morning
start to eat into you
dissolving to water in my dream, so real to this fake.

Cinnamon dust to bring to my senses
you'll never be true
now I feel so defenceless, your life
locked away
withering and waiting for the day
when I hold you close, to make my dreams stay.

I once had a dream you were trapped in my pocket
I fed you dead flies
just to keep you alive
but now you have gone, I still keep your hair in a small golden locket.

Cinnamon dust to bring to my senses
you'll never be true
now I feel so defenceless, your life
locked away
withering and waiting for the day
when I hold you close, to make my dreams stay.

And though every morning you must say goodbye
as we reach the shore through that long corridor
I know that you're real as the dream starts to fade
and I open my eyes with a sigh.
