From the recording I Carry Your Heart - Alexis Cole Sings Pepper Adams
Now in Our Lives
Take down my heart, take it down
and then prop up my heart.
Prop up my heart and collect the remains.
Time to last beyond the measure.
Now rise up my heart. So sad.
Sad are the grasses that we lie upon so still.
Until this evening we were under the dark.
Sensations now return to our grieving bed.
Carry us back, oh please
raise up our hearts.
Raise them up and then celebrate heat.
Celebrate care and collect the remains.
Make some time beyond the present.
Now, sail up our hearts so carefully.
We two were dressed for a day so bright;
We two were dressed for the night,
but gave way to thorns of fright,
those little subtle thorns of fright.
