The leading single from Yali's forthcoming EP, "Ancient Heart."
Please, lover, keep my ancient heart.
An age abandoned, sucking sour sweet tarts,
With rotten teeth; stuck in my youth.
Don’t make me brush;
I want my skin to come and brush across you.
Keep me clean. Please keep me safe.
The child in me wants to run,
But, oh, I need your cage.
I lay me down, I hear your breath,
I see the full sun rise and fall
In cycled movements of your chest.
Could you put me in your pocket,
Where the warmth could rest a restless bull?
Could I carry me around with you?
Bare feet on broken glass,
Softened by glue.
Please, lover, lead me where to go;
Stuck on this island,
But there’s still so much I need to know.
I grab the keys, you pick the place.
Let’s go get lost, like B & C,
And never leave a trace.
What you are, oh, my love,
Is something so right it can’t be wrong.
Open up your gates
And let the bull run
Oh! You keep me running.
Oh! And I can’t let up.
Oh! Spoil me rotten.
Don’t make me beg.
