lyrics

This year I slept and woke with pain, 
I almost wish'd no more to wake, 
And that my hold on life would break 
Before I thought of my mistake 

But, for my unkept heart and brain, 
A use in mournful singing lies; 
The sad mechanic exercise, 
Like dull narcotics, numbing pain. 

Desires mine, 
We know not how to make them thine. 
Desires mine. 
Thou seemest human and Devine. 
Desires mine, 
We know not how to make them thine. 

Let Love hold Grief and both be drown'd, 
Let darkness bare her heavy cross: 
Ah, sweeter to be drunk with loss, 
To dance with death and beat the ground. 

Perplext in faith, but pure in deeds, 
At last I beat the music out. 
There lives more faith in honest doubt, 
Believe me, than in half my creeds.
