Luminescence

now watch me cry, now watch me run
just the same as anyone
along the ledge out in the light
and we can only go so far
how can we know just what we are
all we’re told is not to see

greeting with a royal pride
hiding with our shame

across the room there lives a spider
waiting for us to lose our way
and so we dream ever so safely
better not lose our friends today

and how the fear can escalate
but we can hope that’s what they say
within the rules you will achieve
and then the more of us there are
the more that we will carry on
and we can keep the myth alive

ash to ash and lie for lie
how we hold our side

outside the world there sounds the thunder
rattles and shatters through the wall
and skye she takes a chance through darkness
not even really knowing why

to where i don’t know
to where the earth glows
with eyes wide open
and light from within

Silent World

i can’t find the way they talk to me
their silent world hangs above me
closed off from what little room i had
i cannot move, i can no longer be

floods of distant ghosts are calling you
to be a part of last year’s tale
free of shackles from a real gaze
we’re at our best and we’re at our worst

take me to the wind where i can
feel the air all around embrace me
castles in their moats with no connection to anyone
all around are new born butterflies
i won’t harm the fresh light in their eyes
i looked around but it had gone away
i can’t find a reason to stay

i can’t read what they have shown me
and if i do i’m even less like me
tucked away from what used to move me
there’s little left, now so little right

waves of meaning all is leaving me
who really cares what i say
i feel like i’ve never been alive at all

take me to the winter i remember from so long ago
four feet deep and hours spent making new homes in our hopes
all around are new sun’s distant skies
i won’t harm the beauty for our lives
i looked around but i had gone away
could not find a reason to stay

Sky Above the Sun

trapped in a dark green world, i rest a while on wooden towers i have never seen
i will reach the end, carried with the leaves before my friends

when i was young i dreamed of this
distant places i would find
i realised it all too late
words can’t find a way to say

crack down, arrange it all
find out the answer to this question
gather around me then, am i so different from before?

once upon a time i had a friend
showed me the way with a smile
and the choice was late
but when it came
with such a simple answer
it had been, on your mind for so long
from an early dream in the sun
oh sweet emily, oh when will the song sing for you

confessions cruel and harsh
a poison to be spread
a prisoner before you said
watching terrifying screams with blank stares
taken out, there’s nothing left, there’s nothing
open sea
sky above the sun
leave me, to find a way
lonely hours of peace will be
what i need

greeting with a royal pride
hiding with our shame we cry
i wonder if we’re lovelier at night
ash to ash and lie for lie
how i love the silent bride
all we lose is all our heart inside

what if i crossed your path
what if i turned away
followed my own heart
is it right or wrong

open sea
sky above the sun
leave me
to find a way
lonely hours of peace will be
what i need

love the breeze
and how it doesn’t know
see me
i will not stay
think about instead what it means
to be me
to be free

and my words were wrong
because in the end, it takes so many peaceful souls to find
what is love and what is kind
and what should matter to us all
oh sweet emily, oh when will the song sing for you?

and the choice was late but when it came
with such a simple answer, it had been
on your mind for so long
from an early dream in the sun
oh sweet emily, oh when will the song sing for you?
