Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Love is easy
Whichever way you start
Take a diamond
Slice it through your heart
And watch what color bleeds
And task which sweetness
Decimation stings

For inamorata and swan-like swain
For valentine and twinning flame
On whiff of pain and cross
Your cedar burns, aflame

I'm down for bewitching trains
And cursed tower
Masts blacked as windswept
Horizons ever sour
If it takes more to find you
Than setting out a faded sun

Can you feel the same
Do the stars inked on my face
State what's changed?
With a distance I can't make
From a distance I can't make

For tango-smith and cantor camoused
For anguished scrive and maelstrom mouse
On scent of pain and cross
Your cedar burns, aflame at loss
