From slow to still

From slow to still

I’m still moving
But imperceptibly
The wind she has died down
To just a chill
I can still feel you
But so imperfectly
And the moment she fades
From slow to still…
And the moment
She fades from slow to still

I lose you in my hands
To find you in my heart
I ask: ‘How long?’
And you say: ‘Until…’
The world she turns
And I turn with her
Then this moment
She fades from slow to still
Then this moment she fades 
From slow to still

I love you, I love you,
I love you…

There’s a crack between the worlds
And a lightning strike
Silent like an arrow
Upon that hill
All knowledge is eclipsed
Like some kind of heart attack
And the moment
She fades from slow to still
And the moment she fades
From slow to still

I speak in truth
And I speak in tongues
I speak directly
To our ills
I come in peace
And I come to heal
And time and space
They fade from slow to still
And time and space they fade 
From slow to still

I love you, I love you,
I love you…

Don’t look at who I am
But take what is in my hand
I understand
That you have to kill
And I may die
A hundred thousand deaths
And my heart she’ll fade
From slow to still
Yes my heart
She’ll fade from slow to still

So kill me
And I will feel Thy sweet ecstasy
And I will swallow
That bitter pill
We know it has to be this way
My brother, my sister
So that our moment can fade 
From slow to still
So that our moment 
Can fade from slow to still

I love you, I love you,
I love you…
