Sparklehorse – Return to Me

I walked, and ghosts awoke me.

So very high a bridge beneath

my feet.

A man who jumped before

paused.

A girl engraving light

on slides behind glass.

They see the same sight.

They hear a similar score.

But different tones of thunder and brass.

A moment before.

Equivocal and opposite,

God’s Grandeur and the loss of it.

Open mechanical and golden gates.

First opened for the descent

four days late.
