Her dance needs nobody, no body at all

She's both darkness and light
Just a shadow on the wall

Wink of a black cat eye
At the end of an unlit hall

Both a lady and her lover
Both a child and her doll

Time, has no body at all
Over and over
Surrender, surrender, surrender
Rage gently

She's warm breath on a winter's window
Tangled humming birds fall

The earth is her footprint
All the wind is her shawl

Her dance needs no body, no body at all
