Everyday you brilliantly burst into flame
Only to be extinguished by a breath of fresh ice
You spiral, cascade, and stop
Wave and smile as you break down everything
Never sleeping, never surrendering
Wrinkles tarnish a perfect sky
Innocence fades to regret
Life fades to death
Dripping sand turns to precious stones
Molding, shaping, escaping
Whisper and call, you will never catch me
