Dim the light
Dim the light come shining through
There's a picture a picture of you.
Sunshine in the morning, moon-lilting-night!
In the evening-tide-bright!
There's an angel a portal a vestal-of-white-light!
In my heart by my side and in my life
Oh she must be a gift heaven sent
A gift that can only be incorrigibly, right!
Because no-one could ever love her
More than me tonight!
Oh-love-locket, clasp-my-sea-pearl-soul, and heart
Within this her angelic-angel-light!
Oh tie-up all these loose lingering pearls like stars
Shining like pendent tears,
In the solar plexus churning of our hearts:
At these unearthly times I feel
I can still hear her singing old calypso songs
With an inner madness so surreal
It must be real..?
For the music it throngs for her love within me
It longs to be healed within me
It longs to be fixed like a broken seal
Awaiting, her prince's serenade her real deal.
Or it could all just be the starlight
Her ebony all enfolding-
Oh dim the starlight
Come shining through
Oh dim the starlight
The starlight, the starlight
Lit by you!
Oh my dancing, dazzling star
Don't dance so-far-away-from-me
You've got to encircle your mystic charms around me
Spin your cocoons of love and surround me!
Till I'm lost like a moth in a web of delirium,
Breaking-out of the light!
That holds me in the midst of your night...
A captive forced fed to feed
Until I can't be freed
From your love
Or even be bothered to breathe!
Without; the oxygen of your love...
