Originally a Faith and the Muse song, this is an alternative version.


How carelessly the bound daylight caresses  
Oblivious to wandering eyes extinguished

Free me reckless with the night  
Elusive scenes enkindled burst to fire

Where splendor casts umbrageous twin  
And love sparks radiance

To guide the heart from within  
All in search for you
Eve of brilliance  
Till the morning proves indifference   

For the sparks die  
Leaving shadows in my vision
How dutifully the dull sunlight chastises  
Adopted wings that dare arise with promise

Incandescent I represent  
Pandora's uninformed enlightenment

And fears that creep about my flame  
Evanesce until the dawn calls them

Home again bearing thoughts of you
And I'm helpless to see  
Unbecoming of me  
Blindly mythicizing
Etiolation emphasized by merrythoughts  
Once broken by moonlight

Oh brighter to have never loved  
Than gather ghosts of the blinding  
Relentless sun idealized in you
And I can't bear to see  
Unbecoming of me  
Love is not dead
