I rise early, my love
To see the dawn with you
To breathe the light in
And the heat from your skin
A night beneath a blanket of me
I lay across you in praise
This is how I would start my days
And end them too
I made this skin for you

In the darkness it seems
The trees whisper their dreams
But only the owl knows where
And which way our love would grow
So I hold him close to my chest
It just seemed the best way
And we want to be wise
To our love's eyes
But to know that you're true
I made this skin for you

And this morning I'm up before the birds
Run my hands through owl feathers
Because when we let go
You rise and I stay low
And though I have nothing of you
I still have these wings
And their spreading is like the sing
And It's like they sing
But I flap around blind
In the darkness to find
Some skin to touch
Some skin to touch
To touch...
