Song for Zula

Phosphorescent – Song for Zula

I posted this three times now. I think I love this song. 😉

“Some say love is a burning thing

That it makes a fiery ring

Oh but I know love as a fading thing

Just as fickle as a feather in a stream

See, honey, I saw love, you see, it came to me

It put its face up to my face so I could see

Yeah then I saw love disfigure me

Into something I am not recognizing

You see the cage, it called, I said ‘come on in’

I will not open myself up this way again

Nor lay my face to the soil, nor my teeth to the sand

I will not lay like this for days now upon end

You will not see me fall, nor see me struggle to stand

To be acknowledged by some touch from his gnarled hands

You see the cage, it called, I said ‘come on in’

I will not open myself up this way again

You see the moon is bright in that treetop night

I see the shadows that we cast in the cold clean light

Now my feet are gold, and my heart is white

And we race out on the desert plains all night

See honey, I am not some broken thing

I do not lay here in the dark waiting for thee

No, my heart is gold, my feet are light

And I am racing out on the desert plains all night

Some say love is a burning thing

That it makes a fiery ring

Oh but I know love as a caging thing

Just a killer come to call from some awful dream

O and all you folks, you come to see

You just stand there in the glass looking at me

But my heart is wild and my bones are steam

And I could kill you with my bare hands if I was free”
