Such Thin Wire

You and I slowly untether
Drifting apart on our boats made of feather and bone
Drawn into something unknown, my friend

Rustling reed-hush, sweet breath of river
floating through canyons of blossoming bodies with you
The current is winding but true, my friend

Torrents of sunlight, leaves of deepening fire
Your bright skin blazes, your hair a pagan choir
Fading call, invisible fall
We are bound by such thin wire

You and I slowly untether
Rising and sinking on lives made of pinion and stone
Soon you will be alone, my friend

Torrents of sunlight, leaves of deepening fire
Your bright skin blazes, your hair a pagan choir
Fading fall, invisible call
We are bound by such thin wire
Such thin wire
