Your Wish Is My Wish
by Sarah Slean

In my mind-storm I did carry you
Through the briars of disbelief
Through the woods of lethargy
Through a groaning dark so deep
I thought I died

In the fountain I did cool our feet
Under red and rainless skies
Singing ragged lullabies
Through the grief all advertised
In neon lights

Baby, your wish is my wish
And I have only this
From now on

Baby, your wish is my wish
Keep on running to the door

I hear Beauty crying in her sleep
So I bent for one more kiss
And her tears will turn and twist
We make bliss to end all bliss
And all time

Baby, your wish is my wish
And I have only this
From now on

Baby, your wish is my wish
Keep on running to the dawn
Running to the door...
Keep on running to the dawn

I hear Beauty crying in her sleep
