Jesca Hoop-Seed of Wonder & Enemy

Seed of Wonder from Kismet (2007)

once my love stood still like a stagnant well for so long, you could hear
the song of spiders – strumming fibers
calling her to the web
my river sits in ebb
the little ones lean over – laughter echoes
bounce down the dark until it hits the floor
singin come on baby come on child – call your flo
like a seed of wonder – faith of mustard
o yeah, wo yeah

all is dark – all of the light is vanished it is gone
like something large
hovering high has covered up the sun
and something quiets the silken ringing
something breaks the strum…
a wish has finally come

ah oh ah no ah – all i want is to be writing
to be writing

once that wish did land
like a star in my hand – it burned and it burned and it burrowed in
soar through the source searching – hammer and ping
and tapped my virgin spring – and prime the vein with milk of mother
and wet my river bed
pearls strung up on silk thread – the starry one – beams a light
he’s working under – diggin through the dark gatherin particles
findin everything you ever wished for in your soul like a seed of wonder faith of mustard
ah no ah no ahhhno

finally that tapped spring come runnin like a river
my song it came – ahh eeeyeah ohoo noooay
right away i went writin i went writin
right away i was hummin i was hummin
right away i was singin i was singin
right away i was lovin – and goes something like…
light…
i haven’t always been under such a blue – only you
have seen such stormin in my life

Enemy from Kismet (2007)

Beautiful
alone with my enemy
and share a bitter cup
of poisoning
my countenance
to see his face in mine
and follow every line
back to my enemy

you are mine
pennyroyal wine fly
like an innocent child
that followed every line
back to my enemy

beautiful
falling fast from a state of grace
and trusting there is a light
in darkest place
my dirty knees
hold the ground till it’s done with me
i’ve come to see that beauty is a thing
that is without grace

you are mine
pennyroyal wine fly
like an innocent child
that followed every line
back to my enemy

beautiful
at home with my history
and run the scarlet ink
with the tears of mercy
my battle wounds
lay to rest a treasure box
and thinkin of the scars
as the jewels of my story

you are mine
pennyroyal wine fly
like an innocent child
that followed every line
back to my enemy
