Fire in the Chill of the Night

TIP OF MY TONGUE
(Mark Heard)

There’s an oasis in the heat of the day
There’s fire in the chill of night
And when I know them both, I’ll know your love –
I will feel it in the twilight

Knock the scales from my eyes
Knock the words from my lungs

I want to cry out
It’s on the tip of my tongue

– Mark Heard, “Tip of My Tongue” (Sattelite Sky – 1992)
