​The Seven Sisters

This song is by Rainer Maria and appears on the album A Better Version of Me (2001) and on the live album Anyone In Love With You (Already Knows) (2004).

I want to see your goodness around me
But it's got the properties of water - transparent as glass
Your goodness is coiled like a fist,
Holed up in the back of the attic,
Crouched like a cat
You said I look like a stone sinking

But I am a constellation cut out in the sky
And if I have stopped burning
Will you know in your lifetime?
And should I feel cold and far?
And should I feel weightless?
I imagine safety in the stars
'Cause you make so many wishes.

Do you ever hear what the stars are saying to you?
