When you ate i saw your eyelashes Saw them shake like wind on rushes In the corn field when she called me Moths surround me - thought they'd drown me And i miss your precious heart And i miss your precious heart Can you hear me, will you listen milkymoon Don't go near me, don't go missing In the lissome light of evenin' Help me, cosmia - i'm grievin' Dry rose petals, red round circles Frame your eyes, and stain your knuckles Dry rose petals, red round circles Frame your eyes, and stain your knuckles And all those lonely nights down by the river Brought me bread and water, water in But though i tried so hard my little darling I couldn't keep the night from comin' in And all those lonely nights down by the river Brought me bread and water, kith and kin But in the quiet hour when i am sleepin' I couldn't keep the night from comin' in Why you gone away Gone away again I'll sleep through the rest of the day If you're gone away again I'll sleep through the rest of the day Sleep through the rest of the day Sl
eep through the rest of the day Why've you gone away, away Seven suns, seven suns Away, away, away, away Can you hear me, will you listen Don't come near me, don't go missin' In the lissome light of evenin' Help me cosmia, i'm grievin' And all those lonely nights down by the river Brought me bread and water, water in But though i tried so hard my little darlin' I couldn't keep the night from comin' in And all those lonely nights down by the river Brought me bread and water, kith and kin But in the quiet hour when i am sleeping I couldn't keep the night from comin' in Beneath the porch light we've all been circlin' Beat our duck's hearts, singe our flower wings But in the corner, somethin's happenin' Wild cosmia - what have you seen? Water wet her limbs, fire warms her hair [water were her limbs, fire was her hair] See the moonlight caught her eye And she rose through the air Well if you see true light, then this is my prayer, oh; Will you call me when you get there? And i miss your precious heart And
i miss your precious heart And i miss your precious heart And i miss your precious heart But release your precious heart To its feast, oh precious heart milkymoon
