A song from Beulah - A Folk Musical by The Flanagan Collective


If I touch you
I’m afraid you’ll turn to smoke
Light a phantom dancing lover

And were I to kiss
I’m scared that I might choke
On the idea of another

Another version of you
That I hadn’t banked on seeing
Another atom of you
Relearning what you’re being

And if you would look
You’d see me here looking
Making new memories of us

If I cried out
Can you hear me calling
Or we stuck apart because

I see you spending
What I can’t grasp a hold of
You’re feet treading
Where I can’t keep my soul up


from Beulah, released September 7, 2012
