lyrics

Love you dearly, keep you near me
Make you strong and make me brave
Hold you close yet far away
In my lady cave.

And there are ways of consenting
that only happen in the most silent spaces.
And there are things that I've prevented from happening,
but still I come upon those traces of you.

Lure him with a siren's lay
and toss him to a sailor's grave
Chilled beneath the rolling waves
In my lady cave.

And there are ways of dissenting
of holding onto your radical views
that don't involve the destruction of all the most
delicate traces of you.

Let my past selves pass away.
My old songs will mark their graves.
Shameless of that which I've made
In my lady cave.

And there are ways of presenting yourself
Withholding all of your terrible truths
Of being small and highlighting all of the
glittering traces of you.
