the first time I cried in her arms was outside by the coffeehouse I was baptized that night in tears of new life and I passed from my mother to the love of another I was born again love falls from heaven like manna to the desert in our wanderings I tried to hoard it but it spoiled in the morning so I complained to god rather never love at all than to lose it I wish that I could machine things by my own sheer will as hard as I try it only seems I find I am powerless to cause the way in which I'm loved or left behind the last time I cried in her arms I asked why she was breaking me apart now I need to put it all back together again
