Patti Smith Mosaic Lyrics

Last updated: 08/21/2012 05:06:05 PM

Last night in Konya a voice carried me
To the pulpit of the arrow - did you hear it too?
The oracle was written on a silver leaf
Last night I read the words - did you read them too?

Aah...
Precious heart, precious seed, precious life conceived
In the ring of fire, in the sleep of peace
Nothing stops desire for the human beat

Last night was a rapture in the mosaic sky
Dropping shards of love, dropping shards of love

Aah...
Precious heart, precious seed, precious life conceived
In the ring of fire, in the sleep of peace
Nothing stops desire for the human beat

I hunger for the cooling flame, I hunger for the infinite game

Last night in Konya a voice carried me
To the pulpit of the arrow - did you hear it too?
The oracle was written on a silver leaf
Last night I read the words - did you read them too?

Devour me, yeah devour me

Oh Precious heart, oh precious seed, oh precious life conceived
In a ring of fire, in a sleep of peace
Nothing stops desire for the human beat - the human beat
