lyrics

YEARNING
(c) Ju Honisch

Night falls like a blanket,
night falls like the cool soothing voice
from the unknown heavens,
night falls off’'ring me the one choice,
and I rise,
and I dream of you.

Stars shine like true diamonds
beckoning to fly toward the sky,
out beyond the cloud line;
if the night did guide me so high,
I would rise,
I would fly to you.

Waters glisten silver,
black the lake in dark eerie wood
grants the moon her mirror,
when it's quiet and in the mood,
and I dive,
and I glide to you.

Living on the lake ground,
breathing the sweet waters so black,
I will rise at midnight
spy the skies and then I'll sink back
and I wait
and I yearn for you.

When you swim the waters,
from below I watch your white skin,
I will come and touch you,
stroke you with my mud-glistening fin
with my tongue
I will steal your breath.

Final Verse
Sink to the ground with me, sweet oppression.
Don't fear my cool sedimentary passion.
Your body I hug with my slithery skin,
to my cool, wet shades I invite you in,
and we'll breathe muddy water together
and I'll love you until you decay
night by night, day by day.
