You travel down the spiral staircase that
leads you into the depths of your soul.
Where there are no lanterns,
Why do you do this to yourself?
You’re slipping away
But you want to stay
And all your ghosts and shadows
Trail after you wherever you go.
Untouchable and fading,
where has your thunder gone?
The crashing lightning,
the explosions, the fights and
Your out-of-tune songs.
But I won’t forget you.
You were the red dressed soul
with a heart full of passion,
A belly full of laughter.
You kept your love in your pockets
and emotions in your heart.
Words were scribbles under your skin
and naturally flowed from your fingers
You were a traveller, a dreamer
A wanderer, barefoot and hair-free
stealing chimneys with yellow feelings
Searching for the green.
I will find you,
Wherever you go.
So you’re new to feeling in love?
Tell me how you feel, is it thrilling?
Do you feel butterflies? Are you feeling alive?
Are you warm? Is your mind occupied?
You’re ready for the ride, whichever road it takes.
Your so far from the well-talked about heart break.
You’re feeling young and beautiful and vulnerable
and you’re smiling with that hot red flush
on your cheeks, a bounce in your step
as you feel the adrenaline rush.
So you’re new to feeling in love? You’ve got
all the symptoms but before you hold forever,
grab on to the little moments to build yourself
a picture. You’re new to feeling in love?
With yourself – blow your mind a kiss, give your heart a hug.
Who will stop your castles from falling?
When will you realise who I am?
You push past me in the rush of life.
Just stop for a moment.
Stop and breathe.
Listen to the sound in your battered lungs.
I dare you to find your universe - in my eyes.
All you ever wanted was a little beauty to call your own.
To quench your thirst.
But you're tired and want to go home.
You're weeping now - because. You. Can't. Find. Home.
I said I would build you an empire, didn't I?
There may be thieves and there'll always be liars
wearing the disguise of story-tellers and lovers -
but it'll be worth it when you feel your heart
ALIVE - like passionate fires.
I COULD LOVE YOU like all of the lost skies
that bowed down against the ground
before they were allowed to rise.
