Tumble me in hills and heather
Twirl me through the valleys wide,
Sweep me gentle o’er the threshold,
Then welcome me inside.
Dance my starward eyes with pleasure,
Stroke the heavens into fire,
Show me always now and ever,
Then lead me to desire
Roll me roundwise in the hayloft,
Catch my kisses and my soul.
Bend me, send me softly spinning
Then catch me as I fall
But when the candle dips and flutters
Lullabies into my eyes
Don’t leave me lying, crying, dying
In a pool of your goodbyes
