The double beat on the window wakes me up
I trip into a rhythm from the start
The colours of the night are ricocheting
Soft pressure of fireworks in my head

I feel like the coral, jagged and floral
Drawing from the water the salt for my soul
But suddenly a shadow passes overhead and moves very slowly
The pressure starts to build and my edges crack

And you draw out my breath
And you bring near the death
If living is creativity
You've lost the life in me
But I've misplaced my love
No fireworks above
The stars shine as simple as can be
My life's not about me

When you come in the words always stop
The guilt needle rushes to the top
Too much sung and not enough done
Silence is not enough.

I have to have an answer for my time
Am I working for your world or mine?
Should I release this restless energy?
Or does it only fuel the fire?
