lyrics

How long had it been
Since I last heard your name
A lifetime of dollars
A fortune in days

Wherever you'd gone to
Now we lie here
The pain you hold onto
Can fade with your fears

I'd love to touch you
In all kinds of places
And make love to you
In all kinds of ways

But what I want now
Beneath this blue moon
Is to build you a shelter
And wrap a cocoon

Shepherd you safely
Watch you transform
Hold you unstirring
And release you reborn

So we will imagine
This can be done
When you close your eyes
And you let sleep come

We'll take all of your sorrows
Change all their names
Take all you borrowed
And make it repaid

I wish I had magic
To wash all away
But I'll give you an ally
To face the dark days

And what I want now
Beneath this blue moon
Is to build you a shelter
And wrap a cocoon

Shepherd you safely
Watch you transform
Hold you unstirring
And release you reborn

Like chronic disease
With no known cure
You live a new normal
You learn to restore

You never forget
What you've endured
But on good days
It can feel like before

So show me a smile
You might not yet feel
We'll work on what's broken
Let time help heal

And what I want now
Beneath this blue moon
Is to build you a shelter
And wrap a cocoon

Shepherd you safely
Watch you transform
Hold you unstirring
And release you reborn
