Mattresses

Here’s a song I wrote a few weeks back in the middle of a freezing cold night.  I hope you enjoy….

Lyrics:

At night, if I’m listening right

I can hear the hearts breaking

Bodies settle into mattresses

Setting for what is

 

The wanting it all to turn out right

Becomes the reach to turn out the light

And in the dark, in the still

I’m young still, for the love that will

Love me right

 

Foxes fucking on the frost sharp grass

Wake me startled, eyes wide in the dark

Breathe deep, as deep as I dare

Til silence takes hold of the freezing air

 

I feel so alone and yet I know

The night holds us all together, solo

I send them love, send them joy

The lovers, the lonely, and the resigned

We are the love what will love us right
