As she watches her man
Stealing cash from the can.
Blinded by the silence and unable to stand.
As she watches her love
Run to hell from the demons above.
How can she approach this with the wisdom of love.
There’s a rhythm to you,
As you walk backwards into the room.
Scrambling like a reptile caught a minute too soon.
In this haze of ambivalent wisdom
I’ve neglected to see
Such a special moment in our history.
I want to ride through a tunnel in a winter night
Break through the truth, black out the site of him again
I want to live
When I speak to the matter with a hint of sin
I want to lay back down in death with him on a summer night
I want to live
I want to live at the bottom with my God above
Reach for the heavens in a fit of love and get away
And Live.... Today
In a fit of enlightened delirium
She makes way for those demons to pass.
Rambling in a language that might be her last.
As she slashes the ultimate vision
Overcome by the fear and delight
Of an angel as division between day and night.
Surfing lost souls heaven knows I’ve been bolder
Than I should have been, forgive me my sins.
As I watch and remember that day in September
When I should have held you instead of repelled you.
I see the lights, beyond the heights
Of what could have been had you thought me your friend.
