Michelle and Shane

      Oh, to see without my eyes the first time that you kissed me.
      Boundless by the time I cried I built your walls around me.
      White noise, what an awful sound fumbling by Rogue River.
      Feel my feet above the ground hand of God, deliver me.

      Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me the first time that you touched me.
      Oh, will wonders ever cease? Blessed be the mystery of love.

      Lord, I no longer believe. Drowned in living waters.
      Cursed by the love that I received from my brother’s daughter.
      Like Hephaestion, who died, Alexander’s lover.
      Now my riverbed has dried, shall I find no other?

      Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me I’m running like a plover.
      Now I’m prone to misery, the birthmark on your shoulder reminds me.

      How much sorrow can I take? Blackbird on my shoulder.
      And what difference does it make when this love is over?
      Shall I sleep within your bed, river of unhappiness.
      Hold your hands upon my head, ’til I breathe my last breath.

      Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me, the last time that you touched me.
      Oh, will wonders ever cease? Blessed be the mystery of love.

      “Mystery of Love” by Sufjan Stevens.
