You and I
You and I
Watched the world fall down
Fall down all around us that night
I, I, I wanted you, you, you
To pick up the pieces
And hurl them around
In a great snowfall
Of despair and delight
As you clapped in glee
At the wonder of ruin
The joy of destruction
Your moonshine eyes
Looking all around us
Swirling up the stardust
Gone is the sunshine sky
You said to the starlight
Why, why, why
Were we left far behind
To try, try, try?


The author's comments:
A very syncopated rhythm was playing in my head and I sort of added appropriate words to it.
