Helena Deland – Pale Lyrics

Pale Lyrics by Helena Deland

Spending this much time
In my naked body’s
Not making it familiar to me
Trying to get used to it,
I read what’s on me
See-through blue’s the colour
True love leaves in tiny

Marks, gone so soon
Quiet stars in mid-afternoon,
Pale

“It doesn’t make me feel young”
I say “It’s something more motherly”
I’ll leave in his arms if it’s not I who has to carry

When the night rolls in
a tongue that holds me softly
I’ll melt into sleep
and then am told a different story

In dreams gone so soon
Roaring streams taking me to you
Pale
Pale
Pale
Pale
Gone
