CALL YOU BY NAME


Here is a thing with nothing to say

Mountains won’t stand in your way

You like to walk as if troubles are behind you

They’ll never find you as long as you hide


Out! You’ll miss the rain

Standing with forehead on windowpane

Come out! Bring us your shame

We won’t let you flounder, we’ll call you by name


You with the sun dripping over your face

Nobody knows where you’ve been

Your arms open wide; greeting strangers like family

Nobody knows all the places you’ve sinned

Why there goes the rain!

Standing with forehead on windowpane

Come out! Bring us your shame

We won’t leave you lonely, we’ll call you by name

Oh how I love all the places that shine in you

Let me dine in you and displace myself

Sinking entwined let me forget what binds me to

Sit inside of you and forsake myself


Here is the thing that I’ve wanted to say:

Darkness won’t stand in your way!

You hold me now as if nothing will ever break

All that flowers here in your heart

There I go again!

Bleeding and beating on windowpane

Crying out: “Here is my shame.

Don’t leave me here lonely. I’ve called you by name”


There is no sound when the rivers stop flowing

Its only hope that turns bread into wine

I have no words when the winter floods out of you

… never once did I think you would cry.
