lyrics

Love comes from centaurs
Love charges in
It drains from the jewels
And the dangerous jinn

Love can grow ripe and fall from the sun
Tropically lush and easily won

And harp tones won’t find homes with me anymore
It’s time I learned what being still is for

Love comes from centaurs
Love finds a way
To quietly wake
From the whitening rays

Because you found me rare, we were withering
And because you loved me more, we were withering
Because you loved me more, we were withering

I had my moments with Daphne in Saint Clare
She said she’d take me anywhere
Daphne in Saint Clare

Love comes from centaurs
Love charges in
It drains from the jewels
And the dangerous jinn

Despite the doubt and the hovering end
Baby, if you change I’m still you’re friend

But I’ll find peace, with the Vicar-General’s niece
