Baby, Can You Hear Me Now?

Floating through the frozen grass
Hours dance in slow motion
Between years ahead and passed

Baby, can you hear me now?

Flying, blazing, before the fall
Holding my heart still, once more
Calling beyond cold stone walls

Chains are locked and tied across the door

Dark specks in your golden eyes
The ragged scars through your brow
Whispering truth within lies

Baby, sing with me somehow

The knife, the needle, can’t see
Deeper than they’ll ever know
Softness, when you look at me
Please.  Don’t let go.

Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
