Song Description

a woman describes her dream about how her current love saved her from past demons and declares for her lover

Lyrics

I close my eyes but I can't sleep - I'm going south
The fruit that you gave me was too sweet for this mouth
I tread softly in the dark for fear of waking old ghosts
Wandering through streets I never thought I'd see again, much less go

Run through those green fields
Following my heart
You're my north and south, east and west
Sun moon and stars you are
I saw the dark and I saw the light but I couldn't feel
Cheep little trinkets and coloured lights - it wasn't real
I was drowning, I swallowed it down like a death inside
O I lost my courage, I lost my pride

I'll make a bed 'neath the birch trees under the stars
Some loves are made of foolish games but not ours
Some loves are hard stone upon stone, our love is the sea
Pulling ebbing and flowing freely
