You’re a fire and you’re careless
You keep burning down our dreams
I’m a shadow, running blind,
I can feel you in the heat.
To the river, run me to the river.
And the night is a coffee cup
Dark licorice line
That’s been wired to the street
I can feel it in my teeth
To the river, run me to the river.
From the rivers and the reeds
and the burning
Past the nightmare streets
And forgotten borders
With the whispers and the waves
And the silent offers,
I’ve been there,
So why can’t I be with you?
From the rhythm and the rage
And the lonely corners
Past the blinding scenes
That were falling forward
Past the shivers and the shakes
When the fever breaks
I’ve been there,
So why can’t I be with you?
