Can't
Won't
Don't
Please...

Stuck
Underneath
A widowed tree
Knocking at the door
No one answers
Just mild threats
From the window

I am
I will be
Is
Everything

I can't touch
An Untouchable
Unless invited

Sit and worry
Sit and cry
Sit and ponder
Sit awry
Sit alone
Sit at home
Sit down
Sit on the ground
Sit and see
Sit and creep
Sit and hear
Sit with tears
Sit and move
Sit and choose
The way in which
To be

I still wonder where you are
The sky
Is crying for you
The sky
Can be for us
If only it wasn't so
Tortured
By the Sunshine
And cloudless nights
By beauty
At its beautifullest

Drag me down
I'm ready
Shoot me
I'm ready
Cut me
I'm ready
Teach me
I'm ready
Swallow me
I'm ready
Make me see you
I want to

Got to smile
About something
How about
Nothing
Anything
Everything
And You
...
You're in there somewhere

Don't lie
Don't hide
Don't bury yourself
Just
Let
Go

Stop walking
Stare straight ahead
Turn around
Fall down
Look at the sky
You are Frozen
She walks along
Stops walking
Stares down at you
Automatically lends a hand
But as you first touch her
She whips around
Falls down
Looks at the sky
Now purely by coincidence
You two are together

Memories
See them
Grasp them
Hold them firmly
Open them
Read them out loud
To the child sitting
Before you
Close the Book
Throw it away
You have now shared
Your story
Let the child speak

You keep going down
Down
You know you must
Must
In order to go
Go
As far up
Up
So you can exist for
For
All I can ask of you
You

I don't care
As long as you're happy
Can't
Won't
Don't
?
There are survivors
After the storm
You are One
So just Be

I am waiting
