Mother Earth show my worth
Hold me in your embrace
And crush me under the weight
Of your love, my fate
I need to know if I lived in vain
For what else is there?
But to allow myself to die this way
And return forlorn to the air
Long have I lived like this,
Eternal, the state I am in
My suffocation is my bliss
This knowledge is my sin
I need only to lie on your ground
And let you wrap me up
In wind with arms all around
Until I choose to give up
Oh Mother, please come and smother
Take me, your long lost other
And crush me under the weight
Of love that feels like hate

Of your love, my fate
I need to know if I lived in vain
For what else is there?
But to allow myself to die this way
And return forlorn to the air
Long have I lived like this,
Eternal, the state I am in
My suffocation is my bliss
This knowledge is my sin

you get the title king of discontent with this one...
painfully deep -- you are.
stalking you alwys, your jm

 Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be
