lyrics

Tillian - I'm too close

I’m too close for him to dream about me
I don’t flutter over him
Not fleeing him
under the roots of trees
I’m too close

I’m too close for him to dream about me
I don’t flutter over him
Not fleeing him
under the roots of trees
I’m too close

Not with my voice sings the captured fish.
The ring doesn’t roll from my finger
Too close for him to enter as the guest
before whom the walls part

I’m too close for him to dream about me
Riches rust in density
Fallen the leaves
bare are the roots of trees
I’m too close

Never again will I die so readily
so far beyond the flesh, so inadvertently
Too close, too close, I hear the hiss
and see the glittering husk
Immobilized in his embrace.

Poor me limited to my own form

But I was a birch tree, I was a lizard,
I emerged from satins and sundials
my skin shimmering in all the different colors
I possessed the grace to disappear
from astonished eyes

I’m too close
I’m too close
too close
I’m too close

I’m too close for him to dream about me
All those peacock eggs I’ve laid
Fill up the room
he can’t see them, he can’t see me
I’m to close

I’m too close for him, hiding my skin
Too much flesh and blood for him
He yearns for one, yet to be seen
In this night too close

A valley now grows in her for him, ochre leafed
Out of reach closed off by a snowy mountain
In the azure air
I’m too close to fall out of the sky for him.
My screams would only awaken him

I’m too close
I’m too close
too close
I’m too close
