lyrics

there is a light
creeps in through your
grandmother's blinds
lying there
you're still, cold
your shape holds
a breathing boulder

but i cannot touch you
i won't
though i could
sing out to you
i don't

humming along
as you pour the tea
i sit. plaiting the threads
of my nightdress
would you undress me?
in the morning light
right before i've chance
to wake. quite

i cannot touch you
i won't
though i could
sing out to you
i don't

there's a fine red line
running along the floor
the bedspread
inbetween the pillows
inbeween our hands
there's a line
