Entertaining visions of a lucid nature
Emotional precision, it's our best behavior
Rattling the streetcars on forgotten streets
Making a connection with the bittersweet

Crawling into your mind for some radiant reunion
Tapping out the messages that signify communion
Pressed beneath your folded wings
The ground around receding

Feel love's stinging sword cut deep and catch
The joy that's bleeding out of

Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds, gentle wounds
Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds

Feel the pang of hunger, feel the new life awaken
Restoring everything that once was taken
Symbolizing agony that made the women weep
Feel love's stinging sword slice deep and catch

The joy that's bleeding out of

Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds, gentle wounds
Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds
Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds, gentle wounds
Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds

Bruised and beaten torn apart
The price that's paid for love divine
Can't spare your life don't spare your heart
Just feel the joy that's bleeding out of

Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds, gentle wounds
Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds
Gentle wounds, gentle
Gentle wounds
