Don’t know how much of this I can take it
Waking up anxious
I see poles and criss-crossed telephone wires
None of the trees and
None of the flowers

And then somewhere, somewhere I can
I know I can, lighten up
You poked a hole and threaded the string through
Meanin’ for me to
Lighten up

Don’t know how long of this I can play it
Circular dreamin’
Thin like a movie screen, glitches and phrases
Flicker and fadin’
On me.

And love, somewhere, somewhere I can
I know I can, lighten up
Cause you poked a hole and threaded the string through
Meanin’ for me to
Lighten up

I remember wakin’ up and seeing beautiful
Something no one had to tell me, that’s for sure

And of all the things that I can be
I know I can be kind of dark
But you poked a hole and it’s lettin’ the line through
And now I can hear you,
Lighten up.
