Over the Rhine Album: 'Til We Have Faces Track: Gentle Wounds
Gentle Wounds Lyrics
Entertaining visions of a Lucid nature Emotional precision It's our best behavior Rattling the streetcars on Forgotten streets Making a connection with The bittersweet
Crawling into your mind For some radiant reunion Tapping out the messages That signify your Folded wings The ground around receding Feel love's stinging sword Cut deep and catch The joy that's bleeding out of Gentle wounds
Feel the pang of hunger Feel the new life awaken Restoring everything That once was taken...
Symbolizing agony that Made the women weep Feel love's stinging sword Slice deep and catch The joy that's bleeding out of Gentle wounds
Bruised and beaten torn apart The price that's paid for love divine Can't spare your life don't spare Your heart Just feel the joy...
