Phoenix

I’m hungry as a river
And tired as the moon tonight
I’m hungry as a river
And tired as the moon tonight
Don’t take my words to heart I’m too tired to fight

Every day I wake up
With a tiredness that sleep won’t heal
Every day I wake up
With a tiredness that sleep won’t heal
I’ve forgotten how to show my feelings forgotten how to feel

Wherever I am living
I always want to be some other place
Wherever I am living
I always want to be some other place
Sometimes I want to disappear without a trace

Somewhere in between
An English autumn and New York
Somewhere in between
An English autumn and New York
I lost my soul to the moon and reckless talk

I watched her from a distance
Change her god and change her face
I watched her from a distance
Change her god and change her face
The one I loved for all those years in that distant place

Her Chinese eyes are lethal
They can look into my soul
Her Chinese eyes are lethal
They can look into my soul
The Phoenix rising now to make these pieces whole

In the darkness of your sleeping
In the short death of your night
In the darkness of your sleeping
In the short death of your night
You’ll hear the sound of one eye weeping but I’m all right
