Remnants of a deeper purity

from by Black Tape For A Blue Girl



she was so beautiful to watch, swirling in and out of view
a seemingly spanish dancer, hands and heels -- a moon-faced girl with eyes downturned
subtle flesh stirs beneath blackened threads -- refined and tempting
so shy and enticing, yet i fear she’ll disappear before the night ends.

time seems to bring us together again
a decade later in another face - are you the girl i’ve been dreaming of?
you look like her, you smile like her - that raven-haired beauty of another time
a rush of memories washing over me - i’ve always been waiting for someone to set me free.

those eyes quietly tell me of the passion we could share
your dance reminds me of the life we once knew
snares for my hopes, snares for my thoughts, snares for my dreams -- drifting on to oblivion
can you tell me about the intuition i feel -- can you tell me about everything i long to understand?

remnants of a deeper purity
remnants of a deeper purity

she was so beautiful to watch - drifting out on to oblivion
a moon-faced memory with eyes downturned - are you the one, the one i’ve been dreaming of?
