paradise city

paradise city

the sun, the watch, that echo

on an open plain
on the vista blind
on the ocean’s brave front

you can feel it sing
shine silver in the light scarred

and tomorrow the knife
and the bleeding edge

the sun
the watch
that echo

and when you’ve tasted true love
that feeling of courage
and you know and you know

it’s everything

and the double blind,
the double blind

give me your pain
show me the breathing unmasked.

i see you there

and i sleep better

in european beds

and the light

pours in

through the curtain cracked

and i have an idea for an intro movement

and i forget it

and i think of you

of the way you move

the sound of your laugh

that smile

and i close my eyes

and i think of your lips

what you reveal

and what you don’t

and i hear your voice

and i think i’m dreaming

and i feel your lips

and i open my eyes.

all blurred out

all blurred out
