Accompanied By Dreams

from by Clara Engel

lyrics

you said that I would be
accompanied by dreams
that would make this place
less sinister to me
but you lied
I'm terrified

you said that we would reap
a brilliant harvest from this grief
you said that life
is just one long
unburdening
but it never rained
it's autumn in our veins

you said that you would leave
a small, bloodied offering
that would make this night less ravenous for me
but if I breathe
the night will swallow me

you said that you would bend the bars
and let me rest a while in your arms
when the next war comes
and they bomb the last eden of stars

if I lie
would you let me inside
or should I wait
for another lifetime
if I lie
would you let me inside
or should I wait
for another lifetime
