To dream of the sea
Where I’m washed to the shore
With the clouds coming in
Like the waters before
I lift up my voice
To the ruinous waves
For the lights that once shone
Are beginning to fade

October mirage
Is a sword in the air
Or a wind in my heart
On an evening prayer
I’ve said it before
And I’ll say it again
“Every house is on fire
Every light has gone dim.”

Fire the arrows in the air, O the air
At once, at last
To the places where my lover remains
Every ocean is the same.
