Life Cycle: Last Lyric

This is the final lyric that wasn’t used in Life Cycle. You can get an idea of how it would have sounded by listening to ‘The First Turn‘.

A mother addresses her baby, that has just turned itself over for the second time.

Life Cycle will be performed on Saturday 2nd February at King’s Place. Tickets.

 

The second turn

 

You are so strong

You are so strong apart from when you’re not

You are so strong apart

 

Apart from me

Apart from me you’re not the thing I know

Apart from me you’re not

 

You’re not quite safe

You’re not quite safe exposed to otherness

You’re not quite safe exposed

 

Exposed to life

Exposed to life beyond life I control

Exposed to life beyond

 

Beyond my love

Beyond my love is pain, horror and dirt

Beyond my love is pain

 

Is pain so bad?

Is pain so bad it kills the will to live?

Is pain so bad it kills?

 

It kills the kind

It kills the kind of soul we rarely meet

It kills the kind of soul

 

Of soul you are –

Of soul you are – you are of nothing else

Of soul you are – you are

 

You are so strong

You are so strong apart from when you’re not

You are so strong apart…
