NOW BOARDING

These ships that pass in the night

Single lights that stalk the water

Leaving no trail, wordless temptations

Urging you to run, fading ghost

In a heartbeat you can be gone

But when (if) you return

Will that girl have the same eyes

As the one who saw the ships?

YOU & I (a)

Though you are bigger than me

My hands are large enough

To hold you

Circled within my arms

Warmth and nuzzles

And kisses that swallow

The deep, hungry darkness

This large turtle shell

Made of my arms and your eyes

Speak of Home

While the storm rages

Outside.
