Patti Smith – Mosaic lyrics

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
