Golden Eyelids

This song is by Lost In The Trees and appears on the album A Church That Fits Our Needs (2012).

As a color she'll rise
From the water
A golden light wanders with the birds
Where have you been?
What have you seen?
All the peace when you come following
I'll tell you it's worth it all
Oh, my eyes see red
Behind your golden eyelids
Are drawers of your hair
But no tears
That your cancer is fed
Your soul shielded
Your voice sings red

My twins were born
Far too early
Cut out and laid in a bed of heat
Lead me from this dark house
With your gold fingers
Turn this wicked touching into a golden church
Please tell me it's worth it all
On your heart beats red
Behind your golden eyelids
Float with birds in your hair
No words
That your mouth left unread
Oh, my arms are your bed
Your heart beats red

You have such a good heart
For wandering
All the peace when I come following
You told me it was worth it all
Oh, my eyes see red
Behind your golden eyelids
Beyond the last words you said
Oh, I'll follow
All my flown away kids
Let your arms be our beds
And my eyes see red
