Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

She's just a wild girl


going to the desert now
to see a friend
she lives inside the dirt
at the world's end
she's not a comfort girl
she's not a queen
she's just a wild girl
she's just a wild girl

i drive in snow and sleet
in ice and pain
i cross the mountains high
i call her name
down to the desert
this ain't no game
i want to hold her close
climb inside her grave
 her grave is cold

the roads are hard to hold
the lights give blind
out in the desert, friend
not much to find
she had a trailer
she had a post
the wind is howling
she is a ghost
she is a ghost

she's just a wild girl
out in the wild world
she's just a wild girl
i am alone
she's not a comfort girl
she's not a queen
she's just a wild girl
she's just a wild girl
i cannot hold
and i can't let go

the sun is weak and low
still burns my eyes
i am alone on earth
stars in the skies
i want this wild girl
to have and hold
lost in the desert
lost in the cold
man, i'm growing old

she's just a wild girl
out in the wild world
she's just a wild girl
i am alone
she's not a comfort girl
she's not a queen
she's just a wild girl
she's just a wild girl
i cannot hold
and i can't let go

***
