if i built my walls

If I built my walls
house deep,
And mountain heights
Buttressed me against
All invaders,
Would you still come for me?
Would you come
And set up camp
Beneath my sky-towering walls
and besiege me
With ingenious engines
And bold armies of love
In the long fighting season?

If I levelled a hill
to raise a mountain
of flint and granite tears,
Would you search me out
Despite my hiding
And take me home?
For I am ready
And I hear you coming
On wings of love
Come then;
I will light a fire for you.
