Between Dog And Wolf

2013

Late afternoon in winter time on the edge of the city
The incinerator towers are breathing out into the cold
The birds are making spirals high above the neon skyline
Across the drifting swirl of charcoal and gold
Islands in silver seas as the land falls into shadow
These are more real for me than all that I leave behind
And if I could only choose one moment to last forever
I would be here with you 
Between dog and wolf
Between water and wine
Between wine and blood

From the black and icy river’s edge to the resurrection garden
We were in the arms of something that was unfolding
I close my eyes and see wild horses coming from the sky
Narcotic dreams and miracles descending
Silence my silver tongue and meet me somewhere deeper
Everything’s how it feels – is what you were trying to say
And if I could only choose one moment to last forever
I would be here with you in the place between dog and wolf

Where the breath is sweeter and the lights are diamond
Where the blood runs faster and the taste is stronger
And the night uncoils moving around us
Come, take what you want in the place
Between dog and wolf
Between water and wine
Between wine and blood
