love song & moonlight



so i have been reading "captivating" which is the companion to "wild at heart". in one of the passages i read last night they were talking about allowing God to woo you. part of that is taking time to be with God and finding the ways in which God speaks to your heart. tonight after being blessed and covered in prayer by one of my beautiful sisters, i was listening to ryan adams. as "when the stars go blue" came on i realized that this is God's love song to me. the lyrics speak of the calling and pursuing of a wounded and beautiful woman laughing with your pretty mouth laughing with your broken eyes. i want to dance before God in all of the pain and beauty i have been given the free dance of a woman who is loved and loves...winsome and free in the moonlight of a cool summer night. like the bride in "corpse bride" dancing in freedom in the moonlight. God how much i want to be a woman who is freed to be the delightful creature she was created to be, to live into that wonder and mystery.






"When The Stars Go Blue"

Dancin' where the stars go blue
Dancin' where the evening fell
Dancin' in your wooden shoes
In a wedding gown

Dancin' out on 7th street
Dancin' through the underground
Dancin' little marionette
Are you happy now?

Where do you go when you're lonely
Where do you go when you're blue
Where do you go when you're lonely
I'll follow you
When the stars go blue

Laughing with your pretty mouth
Laughing with your broken eyes
Laughing with your lover's tongue
In a lullaby

Where do you go when you're lonely
Where do you go when you're blue
Where do you go when you're lonely
I'll follow you
When the stars go blue
The stars go blue, stars go blue
