Treasure Island

Kelly Linkous


Cold Dark Empty


She spins
She spins
In the cold dark empty
Her beautiful loneliness
The stars out of reach
We cower near her
Holding on to each other for warmth
Hiding from the cold dark empty
That surrounds us
That’s inside of us
That threatens to destroy us
We live only in the flashes of light
In a long long cold dark empty
