lyrics

Lux Perpetua

Lux Perpetua Luceat Ei
And the sun is yours
That warms my face and feet.
Lux perpetua—although the night comes in
Like grandmother's footsteps behind.
Lux Perpetua

And the rain will come down drab
And I will bandy blues
Forgotten things in pockets and
Puddles in my shoes
Winter will step on our heels
And bare knuckled knock at the door
And I will cry hotly and hopeless again
Tears of your nevermore.

Lux Perpetua Luceat Ei
And the sun is yours
That warms my face and feet.
Lux perpetua—although the night comes in
Like blackout blinds.
Lux Perpetua

But blackbirds and their brown wives
Have rustled in the leaves
The white-nosed coots on rivers
And the swallows in the eaves

I have been deaf-blind so long
While hedgerows brimmed and then
Not ever will I touch you more
But I'd say I have eyes again.

Lux Perpetua Luceat Ei
Ah ah ah
And because you were you can't be
Taken away.
Lux perpetua luceat ei.
