The Ambiguities

lyrics

Dark sister she came to me in a dream
Shadows hung from her brow
Our father he left me a heavy load
Secret girl left her
To navigate through a wretched world
Only to find her way home

Gentle is the summer sun
The window on the waking world
One day I’ll walk free and firm
Teething on a silver spoon
But swift and sure
The carpet was pulled out from under our toes
But all will be made whole

Sweet Lucy her heart was as pure as gold
Just as soft
Broken young
She came to me and promised her
Whole self to these city streets
Lack of heat
She and myself and my sister
Isabelle cursed as can be

Gentle is the summer sun
The window on the waking world
One day I’ll walk free and firm
Teething on a silver spoon
But swift and sure
The carpet was pulled out from under our toes
But all will be made whole
