Like a Treasure

sink it like a treasure
underneath the waves,
precious beyond measure,
there was nothing we could save,
+++ here I am, I’m running my mouth again,
+++ I’m telling it to the wind,
+++ there’s nobody listening in..

every guilty pleasure
hides my fear of emptiness,
it makes me wonder whether
poverty’s my best defense?
+++ here I am, I’m gathering scraps again,
+++ I’ll peddle them to the wind,
+++ there’s nobody listening in..
+++++ but when the night comes we’ll go out in it,
+++++ until the day dawns, then we’ll take our rest..

we were born to falter,
so I have come to fall
clumsy, at your altar,
bearing nothing but a song,
+++ here I am, I’m spinning my wheels again,
+++ I’m telling it to the wind,
+++ she’s listening with a wise grin…
