lyrics

something,
away from anything sudden,
erasing the sames and the such in
the days of anything sunken –

starting to sprint to a meaning,
a hope scarce dared in conceiving,
a posted note on the ceiling,
a shared bent on a feeling –

a night spent wondering, lights uncrumbling, call me
up and tell me the story
stuff the stale and the sordid
fall apart in the stormy

*weather whether we're there* and
i will show you i care and
who could care about their end,
when we're only a hair's breadth away

oooh it's gonna come again
i'll fall apart
i'll fall away
don't lose me then
where they would take me i can't stay

oooh it's gonna come again
i'll fall apart
i'll fall away
and it won't make much sense but
where i belong i cannot say

running,
away from anything confronting
was only postponing the stunning,
obscuring everything in front of

your wide eyes, but the other side is so superb,
sing me those sounds that you heard,
bring me around your new world
springs in the ground where blue words
are nowhere to be found

i'll be
the falling star in your night dreams
colliding dust in the light beams
the brightest part of your sights seen

the heights of clustering treetops
canopies that accommodate raindrops
company that invalidates wristwatches
imagery you can contemplate non-stop,
so don't stop.
