lyrics

i had a dream last night.
i seen a fading light
outside my one-windowed bedroom.
a car driving away accelerates.

and in that moment
then i realized
i'd been locked inside this place for days.

and you were moving
ever further away.

one chance
to gather up the yellow sun.
one chance
to split a heart into 2 beats.
dance
until the light makes you woozy.

crooked teeth don't equate
to a crooked smile.
with imperfections mean a perfect mile.

i don't want what i love stolen.
i don't want what i love used.
i don't need an abuser
i don't wanna be forced to abuse.

red is an accent color.
green is the color of denial.

live on, leave me be.

by now the light was gone,
up over hills beyond the clouds
on the horizon.

loneliness fell down and froze me
like a tree caught in an ice storm,
bent down under the weight
of self-imposed sadness.

but never truly losing balance.
