Vexare & Sarah Howells – Lanterns


Dust to dust
And mouth to brain
I lie myself down in the grain and
Wait to be a phoenix or a firefly

And ash to ash the buildings fall
Replaced one unyielding wall
And overtures to everlasting peace

Please don’t wake me when I’m sleeping
I’m making sense of it all
And if you let it does it scare you
That we have nothing at all

You can’t light the lanterns
You need a fire a fire a fire

You can’t light the lanterns
Without a fire a fire a fire
You can’t move a mountain
But hooray hooray for the darkest days
‘Cos from the dust you’ll rise again

Coast to coast of endless caves
Your heart was almost drowned by waves
And left there inaccessible by land

But hooray hooray the darkest days
For your young heart will beat again
And all those broken promises
Will heal

Come on tell me does it scare you
That its so easy to fall
But if you settle for the safe ride
Do you feel nothing at all?
