Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes - Cardinal wings Lyrics

She wraps herself in golden things
And walks along through empty halls
Honey, how'd you fall so far?
Awaken from your slumber deep
A lion & a poem so sweet
As sugar or a ripened pear
Let down your dress
Let fall your hair
For tonight
Oh, my love
Let's just hold on
Our rainy days are all but gone
In this old hotel
In this old hotel
Our rainy days are all but gone
Honey, I'll be here
'Til sunlight floods the dawn
Sharp as knives
A full-fixed blade
She cuts me off
She makes me wait
"Our dreams" she said
"Are just falling stars"
Now we're dancing on the boulevard
We twist and twirl up to the sky
My blood's on fire
I'm so alive
"Our dreams" I say
"Are alive and well"
This love is made from steel
This thing is strong as hell
For tonight
Oh, my love
Let's just hold on
Our rainy days are all but gone
In this old hotel
In this old hotel
Our rainy days are all but gone
Honey, I'll be here
'Til sunlight floods the dawn
Watch the building
Crumble down
As we find ourselves
On some solid ground
For tonight
Oh, my love
Let's just hold on
