lyrics

When I think of you now, it seems like a dream
A sunken dream in the sky
When I hold myself up like a moth before a flame,
Then close, oh so close, do I fly

I'd listen for you, to call me by name
Then close, oh so close, do I fly

When I think of you now, it seems like a poem
Your face and your eyes seem to rhyme
You lift yourself up like a diver above a pool
And close, oh so close, do you fly

I'd listen for you, a call or a sigh
Then close, oh so close, do you fly

You covered yourself with flowers and rain
Flowers and rain was I
In a coat made of feathers you'd spread out your wings
Then close, oh so close, would you fly

I'd listen for you to scream 'cross the sky
Then close, oh so close, would you fly
I'd listen for you to scream 'cross the sky
Then close, oh so close, would I fly
