LYRICS

Runes

Come past the edge of quiet

between the notes between the words

Where a perfect song is playing

and for a moment can be heard

A faint waltzing my love, a faint waltzing my love 

Somewhere

 

I want this like color wants the eye

Let me read the runes behind the sky

So clear

Where the quiet reveals the surprise

in the starlight chandelier

 

A melody of velvet

from a galaxy of dust

Come spin the record baby

let the sound surround the hush

And it’s waltzing my love, it’s waltzing my love

Like a big bass drum

The mountains the sea and the sun

Were pulled from the fire by the sound

That says come get down

 

I want this like color wants the eye

Let me read the runes behind the sky

So clear

Where the quiet reveals the surprise

in the starlight chandelier

 

A leaping in my chest, under the trees

in my summer best, with a fairy queen

in sweet july, impress the eye

 

Spinning me way up high in open air

Long to be tumbling upwards like a prayer 

Glory be! I finally found my soul repair

Spinning me way up high in open air

 

I want this like color wants the eye

Let me read the runes behind the sky

So clear

Where the quiet reveals the surprise

in the starlight chandelier
