Spontaneous one take recording in the home bathroom.

lyrics

Here I lay before you, bathed and dressed in blue
on the altar of my past pains.
I had seen your face before, once in the sun, twice in the fall
and three times in the moon.

and as you run away from me, you lead me back to myself.
and as you turn away from me, I turn into myself.

He moves through the trees
My heart is a tree
He is the wind, I will never catch him.

If I lay out my insides under the scope to analyze,
you could understand how to love me.
If you bring forth my inner force, the one above what cannot be undone
you could show me how to love myself.

But as you recoil from me, I repulse myself.
As you turn away from me, I turn and face my hell.

He does not answer to thee, his heart is undone
He is the wind, I will never catch him.
He moves through the trees
My heart is a tree
He is the wind, I will never catch him.
