when i am king you’re gonna build me a time machine
because at night i can’t let go of those dreams.
the what-ifs are still strangling me.
and with this ring i married the city
on islands with white tiled floors
and this is where we only went exploring
and this is where we never got lost.

if i was still a girl i’d make you get on your knees and work.
if i was still a bird i’d make you shoot me down from the sky,
haven’t you heard? i’m almost gone.

and i’m blinded by our stories like i’m blinded by daylight.
and i number the pages. i make up words where our languages fail me.
i let in the water when the rivers come to visit.
i let in the storm if the fire’s strong enough, listen,
i let in the past we painted in a vivid truth.
i want us to become legends among fishes and wolves.

if i was still a girl i’d make you get on your knees and work.
if i was still a bird i’d make you shoot me down from the sky,
haven’t you heard? i’m almost gone.
