lyrics

your eyes like stalactites
and the colours gain momentum
we breath so gratefully
to ask and answer every question

embrace each shifting shape
and the colours still uncoiling
release the swelling heat
and let our blood be sung to boiling

into the mirror out of the sun
out of the mirror into the sun
into the mirror out of the sun
out of the mirror into the sun

your pulse, the smell of salt
buzzing to your last electron
each nerve, the sweetest hurt
until you cry out like a newborn

into the mirror out of the sun
out of the mirror into the sun
into the mirror out of the sun
out of the mirror into the sun

your eyes like stalagmites
and our bodies intertwining
we breath so urgently
with every colour synchronising

into the mirror out of the sun
out of the mirror into the sun
into the mirror out of the sun
out of the mirror into the sun
