Sparks

Shuddering, you were made, my love

To shake up my heart

Sputtering, you were made, my love

To light up the dark

 

I’ll give a little bit of my love to you

Is it what you want?

Give a little bit of my love to you

Is it what you want?

 

Oh, as we move along our way

We leave pieces as we go

Just moments for the dark

We’re shaking off the sparks

Oh as we move along our way

We leave pieces as we go

Just moments for the dark

We’re shaking off the sparks

 

Honestly, we were made, my love to flee

Honestly, we were made, my love

To float on the breeze

 

I’ll give a little bit of my love to you

Is it what you want?

Give a little bit of my love to you

Is it what you want?

 

Oh, as we move along our way, we leave pieces as we go

Just moments for the dark, we’re shaking off the sparks

Oh, as we move along our way, we leave pieces as we go

Just moments for the dark, we’re shaking off the sparks

 

Oh, love, and as we move through time 

We’ll leave a piece behind

What happens where we stand

Will happen here again

Our hearts, they carry on, they grow

 

As our hearts shake off sparks, they grow!

As our hearts shake off sparks, we go!

 

 

Mirror Love

It’s amazing, in this mirror love

We’re holding on by the moment

It’s amazing, in this mirror love

Who we wanna be

Who we’re gonna be

 

Flash, spark

All of the times you broke my heart

Start

With each time we’re laughing

 

Well we fall apart when there’s no one around

And we’re moving off to a dying sound

We’re all just passengers waiting here to go down

Screaming, “Give me what I need!

Just give me what I need!”

 

It’s amazing, in this mirror love

We’re holding on by the moment

It’s amazing, in this mirror love

Who we wanna be

Who we’re gonna be

 

Stay back it isn’t safe,

Keep your heart intact,

Keep your eyes away

 

Cause we’re a mighty howl

We’re a body at bay

Screaming, Give us what we need!

Oh, just give us what we need!

 

But you fall apart when there’s no one around

And you’re moving off to a dying sound

You’re just a passenger waiting here to go down

Screaming, Give me what I need!

Oh, just give me what I need!

 

“Stay back,” the people say

It’s the same old fire, but the violence is growing

 

It’s amazing, in this mirror love

We’re holding on by the moment

It’s amazing, in this mirror love

We’re holding on by the moment

 

Well, we fall apart when there’s no one around

And we were moving off to a dying sound

We’re all just passengers waiting here to go down

Screaming, Give me what I need!

Oh, just give me what I need!

 

It’s amazing, in this mirror love

We’re holding on by the moment

It’s amazing, in this mirror love

We’re holding on by the moment

 

Oh, there will come a time when there’s no one around

‘Cause we were moving off to a dying sound

We’re all just passengers waiting here to go down

Screaming, Give me what I need!

Oh, just give me what I need!

 

 

Don’t Wake Me

Now that your body’s lying next to me

Now that the world is resting at our feet

Now that the silence in the night is clear

Now that you’re laying with me, lover dear

 

Now that the dawn is resting on our backs

Now let your body and your mind fall slack

Now that the waking of the world is clear

Now that you’re laying with me, lover dear

 

Don’t wake me

 

Now that your body’s lying next to me

Now that the world is sleeping at our feet

Now that the waking of our hearts is clear

Now that you’re laying with me, lover dear

 

Now that our time it sways against the dawn

Now that our heartbeats echo on and on

Now that the waking of the world is clear

Now that you’re laying with me, lover dear

 

 

Can You Stay

Can you stay, can you stay 

Just a little bit longer, love?

Can you save, can you save 

Just a bit of my broken heart?

 

‘Cause you’ve been mine 

For all of time

Yes, you’ve been mine

Can you stay, ‘cause you have my heart?

 

Oh the dark, oh the dark

Well, it fits me here like a glove

But I’d fight through the night 

For just a little bit of your love

 

‘Cause you’ve been mine for all of time

Yes, you’ve been mine.

 

Can you stay, cause you have my heart?

‘Cause you’ve been mine

For all of time

Yes, you’ve been mine

 

And my aging bones

They can’t stand alone

My love, the rhythm of my heart’s grown silent

Just a subtle sound

As I hit the ground

As it goes, it goes, it goes away

We’ll never be the same

 

Can you stay, cause you have my heart?

‘Cause you’ve been mine

For all of time

Yes, you’ve been mine

 

 

Battle Cry

Watch the stars at night

How they shake against the dark like firelight

And feel the weight of time

As we move about this world, love, you and I

 

Oh my love, my heart, don’t cry

We were born to die

But for this moment, for all time

 

Oh, I will fight for you

I will die for you!

Oh, I will fight for you

I will die for you!

 

Rage against the waking dawn

Take the seconds of this life

And pull them through your palm

 

And watch the day break through the night

And watch it die

As we bend and break through time, lover you and I,

For this day, for all our lives

 

Oh, I will fight for you

I will die for you!

Oh, I will fight for you

I will die for you!

 

Run, lover, speed, now fly

Feel the years go by

As the weight of time, it shakes

As the earth it turns and quakes

Shed your fears, your tears, your plight

And then ramp into the night

 

And I will fight for you

I will die for you!

I will fight for you

I will die for you!

 

Oh, I will fight for you

I will die for you!
