The First Day - Damage

Bring out the stars
And fade to silence
Let the heart decide
and watch it grow


Ring out the bells
Trading in blindness
Fooled by kisses
Touched by wings


Shadow-fall
And water fills the room
Bathed in moon grey blue


Baby came and spoke her name
With promises to call again
Swimming gold in a blackened sea
She troubles me
She troubles me


Counting the ways
To fall without landing
Stumbling into flight
Descent and slide


Compressing sound
From coal to diamond
Words are knotted tight
To chords that bind


Shadow-fall
And water fills the room
Bathed in moon grey blue


Baby came and spoke her name
With promises to call again
Swimming gold in a shipwrecked sea
She troubles me
She troubles me


Received by the eye, believed by the word
Be seen to make haste, when the soundings are heard
Don't discourage me


Whittling down the wood with the stone
If the boundary breaks I'm no longer alone
Don't discourage me


Bring out the stars
On the first day
The first day
The first day
