3/10 LIKE A MOTH (Song Cycle ) 

I See You 

 

Danger danger said the girl on fire 

Somebody please help me out 

This world is colder than a man could sire 

My bones are rattling with doubt  

Then I see you wading through the water 

You come on through just to help me out 

I never knew this love was all I needed 

Now I see you, I see you  

My body breaks, this pain is never ending 

I feel so broken to my core 

Sometimes I think that I will be my ending 

Sometimes I think I have no more  

Then I see you wading through the water

You push on through bent to help me out 

I never knew this love was all I needed 

Now I see you, I see you  

My soul is bleeding out the songs you send me 

My anguish makes me feel alive 

Somehow I know that you are always near me 

Somehow I feel you in my life  

Then I see you wading through the water 

You come on through just to help me out 

I never knew this love was all I needed 

Now I see you, I see you  

Then I see you wading through the water 

You push on through bent to help me out 

I never knew this love was all I needed 

Now I see you, I see you   

“I See You” is old me autobiographical, written at a time when desperation, romance, sex, and religion briefly unified in unholy matrimony. In the context of the song cycle (the third of 10 songs on snapshots of a failed relationship called LIKE A MOTH) it provides the first lyrical augury. Augury: a sign of things to come, like an omen.
