Listen, heart  Listen close-listen
To the melancholy  Melody of your own voice 
I am weary of my own dreaming 
I am tired of waiting 
So this time, I'm leaping 

[Chorus]
I reach-beyond myself to see
What I find, beyond my mind, there is no time
In this place beyond my sight 
My heart knows what is not yet seen
I'm witnessing my own becoming 

Lash myself to the
 Mantle of my desire-I will
Turn from its temptations 
But the wanting takes me higher 

I am hurting 
Oh, I am not yet born
I am the mother and the father 
Of what is not yet known  Darkness surrounds me
I scratch, I struggle, I breathe 

[Chorus]
