lyrics

I don’t know where a stillness comes from
Or where it goes when you leave
I saw a slow firelight flashing through the woods
And when I turned I grasped a darkness thick with leaves

Circle near, and now you’re passing
But your silence speaks more than you hoped to say
How soon I realized what was firelight flashing
Was just a distant star a thousand miles away

You can leave my little starling
You can leave if you wanted to
Leave and constellated flicker of your going
Will pull me into orbit circling you

Here it is, the stuff we’re made of
Bones and dreams and midnight whisperings
And curling midst this humid summer air
Your love’s unspoken but the touch is lingering

You can leave my little starling
You can leave if you needed to
Leave and constellated flicker of your going
Will pull me into orbit circling you

I don’t know where an evening comes from
Or where we’ll be when it leaves
Just one more kiss the fire returns to sparks it came from
Before the darkness has its ultimate reprieve

Just one kiss before you’re going
Just one kiss and then we’re through
One kiss and constellated flicker of your glowing
Will pull me into orbit circling you
Pull me into orbit circling you
