There’s something within you I crave
the sounds you make
when you stir in the leaves
the crying, the moaning
the breeze
 
You ease the maelstrom
in my skull
the crashing waves
the weight of the damned
and the snow
 
There’s a fire in the dark,
it burns our names
licking red lips
with cold flames
 
There’s something within me I gave
surrendered in hope
for something I craved,
 
Some desire to be loved
to be saved
 
There’s something within you I am
some sound you make
when you stir in my wake
the crying, the moaning
the screams
 
There’s something in our eyes,
it never ends
it’s alone and it’s frightened
in the deep
 
We drink from the rivers of the dead,
slip in, slip out
and now sleep
