The colour of blood

Sweetheart
If ever
You want to look inside my soul
Again

You won’t find me there any more
I left under the shadow of a gun
When all the bridges had been burned
And the desecration had begun

I managed to get away
With a prayer book in my hand
But nothing remained of us
There was nothing left to understand

They had to sacrifice the golden child
How they wept when they carried Him out
He was in white when the soldiers came
So we could see the colour of His blood

The colour of His blood
The colour of His blood
The colour of my blood
The colour of your blood

I made my way along the ridge
Up there beauty shares a border with pain
Looking for where the knights and angels live
And for redemption in the rain

Nothing remains of you and me
What was that mighty storm that came?
From the Zodiac and far beyond…
I wonder if you’ll even remember my name?

I thought I’d remember yours
I thought I’d remember this beautiful life
But it quickly becomes buried and overgrown
Maybe one day they’ll unearth the tomb and the knife

My darling
There’s a ghost of laughter and love
And a moment frozen in fate
When we saw the colour of His blood

The colour of His blood
The colour of His blood
The colour of my blood
The colour of your blood

Well… we found each other sure enough
I think we did what we came here for
We took each other to a higher realm
So now it doesn’t matter any more

It doesn’t matter any more
Learning how to be lovers
All that planting in the sun
All that cleaving to one another

It was our little passion play
Our fragment of transcendence
All those initiations into sorrow
And the eager innocence

It doesn’t matter any more
Twin-flames are we beyond earthly love
Where death fell into the arms of grace
And we saw the colour of His blood

The colour of His blood
The colour of His blood
The colour of His blood
The colour of His blood
