Moon​-​Colored Sun

from Shelter In Place [EP] by Lilac Shadows

lyrics

Shimmering in silence, your ancient waters sleep
Like reflections in a mirror, coming close but never nearer
This cold blue air that floats at your feet
It pierces through me as I chase you down

But you drift on by heavy as the rain
You disappear just as I call your name

My moon-colored sun, darker than a winter’s day
Soon comes the dawn to break you from this fever
And shatter the belief that your holy light
was ever meant to fade

Floating through the hours, you breathe but cannot speak
Like a memory still receding, pulling close and then retreating
This cold blue air that floats at your feet
It pierces through me as I chase you down

But you disappear like the tide inside the waves
And you drift away just as I call your name

My moon-colored sun, darker than a winter’s day
Soon comes the dawn, you’re living in a fever
A broken unbeliever in spite of what
your sacred light still sparks in me
