Campfire Light

from by The Gypsy West



read my mind partner in crime
I've got nothing, nothing to hide, no tribe to survive
no compass in abyss you are my weakness by cover of night
my campfire light
in caves of defeat oh my refugee she paints belief
the more I dive the less I miss I tried bringing riches to the surface but
the weight was too great
so I marked an X amongst the sand and amongst the bones
so I know a place where we can be alone
just her and me oh my refugee we're digging deep
sometimes so brilliant and militant
it's so overwhelming just as matter disappears only to reappear
as energy transferring
laws are made by the lawless but I'd follow you west
I wish that I could just tell you everything is battling for some space
a place where instinct can root by the seeds and where I see
alternative histories in your eyes and now I know somethings grow
they grow so complete
and it grows just for me like a tree through concrete
change in the street
oh my refugee don't you let me
don't let me
don't let me
don't let me forget how to love you
