lyrics

Jade?

Every time a blackbird sings
Crimson tales of fallen kings,
Tempted deeds of amber hue,
I hear midnight hymns of me and you.

Siren’s songs like sonic statuettes,
Years gone wrong, no coming back,
Sulky paths trodden in the air,
Long I saw, how did I not care?

Mystic’s flight or mystic plight?
Come, fathom me my fortune!
When on wings of jade and fire
I burnt myself alive.

I recall running through the fields,
See-saws and back-bends and listening and talking of yields,
Future’s song was calling me to dance,
So distant now, a faint remembrance.

And when I focus I still hear your voice through the door that kept separate our lairs,
And sometimes we’d meet and we’d hear and rejoice and our music would ring through the air.
Then we’d sit on the floor, playing games, smoking weed, then go back try to work through the draught,
And I wonder what we’d have achieved had I not died of thirst and declared it all naught.

Mystic’s flight or mystic plight?
Come, fathom me my fortune!
When on wings of jade and fire
I burnt myself alive.

And I wonder why life goes the way that it goes,
Why one day you have all and the next you’re alone,
No matter how hard that you try and keep afloat,
Your best is sometimes enough,
And sometimes not.
