Current 93 – Bright Dead Star Lyrics

The HummingBird sings but soon come
ByeBye BlackBird the harsh night
And I read in the TeaLeaves
And scan in the Stars
Marked the trails of moths
The Light Shall Leave You All

Excuse me–that Voice that falls from stone
Perhaps it was The Word saying a Word–
Speak that Word whilst the sea falls
And moths swirl and clouds call
The Light Is Leaving Us All

Spring is coming–so they said
Spring is moving
In the WhirlPools
And the Moon is as full
As the sea is as deep
And in the clouds
The shadows creep
And The Light Is Leaving Us All

Sweeping down like foxes
Who have heard in the dust
News travels hard from heart to dark
Rumours of war hum softly
And on their paws black rolls the chariot
Over the plains and waves
The Light Is Leaving Us All

In other faces the eyes twitch and switch
Back and forth King fall Queen fall
Silence shouts
Shut lock shut door shut Lights out
Trees fall–the taste of your face
Our first kiss said–
The Light Is Leaving Us All

Under which Star shone that?
You sang “which sky is that?”
You sang and pointed North and South
I see you didn’t see
Bright Dead Star fallen
You looked East and West
And he birds sang so sweetly
The Light Is Leaving Us All

So suddenly nothing was you
Your hair so fair I recall so well still
And Then The Light Left You Quite
I dreamt I lived on a Hill
In that dream where the real
Is just dots on my lap
The Light Is Leaving Us All
