I Am My Beloved

lyrics

I saw your body rise above the shore
I saw your body arched above the floor
What joy
What joy

There’s a black leather couch,
All tufted, worn out
In the sunlight, it’s warm
To the touch of your mouth
There’s a picture in green
Above an old mantelpiece
Nobody knows the secrets we keep
What joy
What joy

I followed your life line right across your palm
You drank the white wine
I sang from the Book of Psalms
What joy
What joy

All the memories came back
At the sound of a laugh
That came from the room
With the curtains all black
Sickle and hammer
Megaphone on the banner
I tore off the patch
That was sewn on the back
And we married too soon
Couldn’t wait until June
Found religion and love
All in one afternoon
On the side of a mountain,
In front of a fountain
The pistil is brittle, the sepal all bruised
What joy
What joy
What joy
