lyrics

Jerusalem Fields

She sat in bed next to someone else
The floorboards between us, continental shelf

Present but gone on this strange new shield
She left me to wander through
Jerusalem fields

Their laughter falls to silent silhouettes
The novelty enthrals, ‘til absence is felt

Present but gone on this strange new shield
She left me to wander through
Jerusalem fields

Lush but lonely, far but only moments away
Guest but voyeurist of her familial play
Lush but lonely, far but only moments away
Guest but voyeurist of her familial play

The golden domes sway on slender stems
Extend like ancient walls between me and them

Present but gone on this Abrahamic shield
But she led me to the temple doors
Of Jerusalem fields
