More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh

Running through the woods
finding all the noises of the
Night

Pushing through the brush
thorns will scrape against your skin
but you forge on-
and on

Cause fortune sees
what you deserve
and your heart
knows every verse

so you forge on-
and on.

You forge on-

ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh

The wind pulls your hair
the soft mice race you there
and you run on-
and on.
on-
and on.

Your curse of laughter
of live and after
now.

The innocence
in your skin
it can last longer-
not much longer-

ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh

You have to try and win the race
the time limits in such a space,
so you march on-
and on.

on-
and on.

ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh

Just a wish,
your father said.
You knew what this could be

so you search on-
and on.

On-
and on.

Hurry through the desert baby,
rush past the ghosts.

Storm across the little islands,
walk to your home.

I know a little secret
that could save you alone.

ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh

Just keep pressing on and on,

just keep hoping, oh so strongly
and you’ll find-
find.

The place where I reside.

Oh you’ll find.
The place where hope resides.

Just keep looking
Just keep searching

ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh

Oh gosh, Liv, the imagery in this poem was phenomenal, especially the first two stanzas (not counting the "ooh ooh" stanza)!!! I loooved it :) And once again...I also really love all the room you've given for the singer to show off their voice... :)))) Great work!!! Please post more soon!! :D
