LYRICS - Incurable Love

Incurable Love

by Charity Kahn

‚Äč

time used to be long
endless and wide
patient and strong
enough to hold all
our plans and our dreams
our hopes and redemptions

space used to be ours
we traveled so deep
we traveled so far
seeking the next
place to devour
not knowing we just needed rest

and I hear voices rising
and I see movement on the horizon
the gathering lightness
impossible love
is finding its way back home

when I’m here with the trees
breathing a poem written by leaves
and roots and branches
I cry for our family
plundered and lost
broken, long gone

and when I’m here with the children
we dance in a circle
they’re holdin’ tight to our hands
they’re looking up with those eyes
they trust we'll protect them
not even a shadow of doubt

and I hear voices rising
and I see movement on the horizon
the gathering brightness
unstoppable love
is finding its way back home


inside the place in my mind
where I used to live
where I used to hide
now there’s a light
flickering on
standing there brightly in the wind

and inside the part of my heart
where I used to lie
and hate and grow hard
and shut out the world
now there’s a song
that trembles and shines

and I hear voices rising
and I see movement on the horizon
and I feel the rumblin’ of real revolution
and I taste the nectar of sweet evolution
and I hear billions of voices rising
and I see movement on the horizon
the gathering lightness
that we are made of
the gathering brightness
incurable love
is finding its way back home
