If You Would

Califone – If You Would

Silence torn before the sun was born.

Could it be a death of love?

Could you bring me some of that?

I don’t know.

Would you pray if you were asked?

I try to lie but I might.

Casting handfuls of voice in the

black abyss.

Maybe these are the timid miles I never saw.

Maybe this man is my enemy.

I couldn’t see his eyes in the rain.

But I imagine they saw ghosts of towers piercing

the sinews of the sea.
