Lyrics:I want to paint you poems full of fire,
you who I do not know.

Now my mind is tested
with love which
twists and wavers from side to side and which
some day soon you may
see...
I want you to cascade through ten thousand
rainbows with me and dredge
mountains
from the sea:
you who I now begin to know.

But emotion is pent up
inside,
too scared of dying again to live,
and meanwhile I must endure
your
red-copper hair screaming like a
water-baby black eyes stare
from my
ceiling:
you who I now truly know...

Now I cannot see too clearly
and already
my trellis stands bare...
How can I break free of these overclinging
arms which entwine
and enfold me?... And reach
to the clear blue sea?
I want you to know, but how can
I
tell you? I want you to see
but my own eyes are blind...

The Octopus now
enfolds me,
I know you too well...
