The devil made the water warm
And the fruit trees call out for us to taste them all
Little heart I poured your wine and you poured mine

Heaven isn't always kind
Singing stars are far away and the sun says gray
Wind is in the heavy wings and the light stone sinks

Halos and the night falls free
Falling not for you and me
A halo is a band of gold
And we both have one of those

God is breathing on the shore
We become his words, disappear and reemerge
Even borrowed love is sung in a Midas tongue

Little heart I knew you well
You were kin and my kind when I lost you in the tide
Sing a star for all that glows in the undertow

Halos and the night falls free
Falling not for you and me
A halo is a band of gold
And we both have one of those
