    Solomon's Lament

    Solomon’s Lament  

    I taste honey, myrrh, and cinnamon

    Upon your coral tongue

    one scent of your sweet, sizzling hair

    is like a breeze from Lebanon

    You are a garden hidden deep

    I am a spring, a fountain sealed

    I will give myself to thee

    If you will open up for me

     

    But I don’t want to sing about love

    As if I really knew, as if I really knew

    What love was made of

    I don’t want to sing about love

    Lend a forked and crooked tongue

    To that old chant ‘bout how ‘we’re all one’

     

    In the time it takes to sing this love thing

    Another kid soldier learns how easy it is to die

    There’s an answer blowing in the wind they say

    But mostly we just don’t have the time

    The sky is breaking, mute her grief

    The azure sea is weeping

    Your prince of peace is dying in the street

    I’ve got to sing about these things

     

    So I don’t want to sing about love

    As if I really knew, as if I really knew

    What love was made of

    I don’t want to sing about love

    Lend a forked and crooked tongue

    To that old chant about how ‘we’re all one’

     

    I slept but my heart is waking now

    It’s the voice of love urgently calling

    If you will give yourself to me

    I will open up for thee

     

    And we will speak a luscious tongue

    With words of myrrh and cinnamon

     

    Don’t let the flames devour love

    Don’t let Caesar conquer love

     

    Before we learn to know love

    Before we learn to conjure love, conjure love

    Where there is none

    Night

    Night

    Oh night, won’t you try me again

    I didn’t mean to work so long

    Leave you alone without a song

    Oh night, oh night

     

    Oh night, you were always my friend

    You said, don’t you fear the winding ways

    Or the shadow-places you must face

    In this life sometimes, oh night

     

    I’m gonna dress up in your shadows

    And dance your burning drum

    Till this lonely knot comes all undone

    And the lost are found

     

    Oh night, what you’re drinkin’

    I’ll drink that too

    And your burdens, night

    I’ll carry them for you

     

    You’ll see oh night, how much I’ve grown

    I remember all I used to know

     

    I am of you

    Lonely stardust and twilight hue

    Lonely stardust and twilight hue

    We are not alone, though we may be blue

    When we love...

     

    I’m gonna dress up in your shadows

    And dance your burning drum

    Till this lonely knot comes all undone

    And the lost are found

     

    Oh night

    Won’t you slip beneath my skin

    I’ll open all my doors

    And let you in

    We’ll sing, oh night, just sing

    ‘Till we’re one, once again, oh night…
