lyrics

I hope you’re making friends down in the bardos
I hear the lights are beautiful and bright
I hear that pain and pleasure kinda mixes all together
‘till you end up with that thing we call divine

and I won’t ask you to tell me any secrets
that’s not why I’m whispering to the dawn
I don’t need to answer any Sunday morning questions
I just wanna know you’re safe, wherever you’ve gone

smaller than the eye of any needle
your mother’s X, and my little Y
I wish I could have met you before you slipped through the keyhole
and out beyond space and time

do you remember the darkness of that ocean?
or the rhythm of your mother’s beating heart?
we didn’t have a clue about what we were gonna do with you
but we didn’t care about that part

and I know she doesn’t talk to you that often
she’s always been the silent type, you know
there’s things that we don’t talk about, scars she’d rather live without
but she loves you, she just wishes you were home

smaller than the eye of any needle
her little X, and my little Y
we wish we could have met you before you slipped through the keyhole
and out beyond space and time

and I wish I had advice that I could give
oh I wish I had some wisdom you could use
but you’ve seen more than I ever have
and now my little Y’s the wisest part of me
that I never knew

smaller than the eye of any needle
your mother’s X, and my little Y
I wish I could have met you before you slipped through the keyhole
out beyond the great beyond
out beyond the great beyond
out beyond...

so I hope you’re making friends down in the bardos...
I hear the lights are beautiful and bright...
