Making Caves [song lyric]

Posted on Updated on

I know a cave
it’s cold and clear and
right beneath my feet
so frozen there
I make my home all
feelings obsolete

I am not sad
or happy there ’cause
all the earth is flat
And all the things
which pass my cave don’t
have the tools for that

Making caves
For my heart
Maybe I’ll
Be out by March
Tidal waves
Now cannot start
Venus now
My evening star

They glide on by
don’t see my shape or
have me in their view
a thousand swans
could fly by here but
I won’t think of you

No I won’t think
of you (my love) nor
bring you to my mind
this cave ensures
all thoughts of you will
soon be undefined

Making caves
For my heart
Maybe I’ll
Be out by March
Tidal waves
Now cannot start
Venus now
My evening star

I know a cave
it’s dark and dismal
perfect for my songs
and perfect to
annul the foolish
hopes for which I longed

I haven’t found
its basement yet or
seen its worn-down walls
but soon I’ll have
the entrance sealed by
stones and cannonballs

Making caves
For my heart
Maybe I’ll
Be out by March
Tidal waves
Now cannot start
Venus now
My evening star

I’m standing here
but so alone and
broken up inside
i’ve never been
so low before or
so dissatisfied

I wish I had
the strength to finish
off these falt’ring words
but this cold tomb
can only echo
all my cries unheard

Making caves
For my heart
Maybe I’ll
Be out by March
Tidal waves
Now cannot start
Venus now
My evening star
