​Gentle Wounds

This song is by Over The Rhine and appears on the album Till We Have Faces (1991) by ​Over the Rhine.

Entertaining visions of a
Lucid nature
Emotional precision
It's our best behavior
Rattling the streetcars on
Forgotten streets
Making a connection with
The bittersweet

Crawling into your mind
For some radiant reunion
Tapping out the messages
That signify your
Folded wings
The ground around receding
Feel love's stinging sword
Cut deep and catch
The joy that's bleeding out of
Gentle wounds

Feel the pang of hunger
Feel the new life awaken
Restoring everything
That once was taken...

Symbolizing agony that
Made the women weep
Feel love's stinging sword
Slice deep and catch
The joy that's bleeding out of
Gentle wounds

Bruised and beaten torn apart
The price that's paid for love divine
Can't spare your life don't spare
Your heart
Just feel the joy...
