lyrics

I’m tired of the night
coming once a day
like clockwork
I think I would prefer
for the sun to stay a little bit longer

but when it’s dark
and I’m alone
and I’m dancing
even though my eyes are closed
I’m waiting…

Tell me that I’m safe.

Weeks go by in days
before I awake
desire
the sunlight on your face
and the ceiling fan
whispers

but when the lights are on
in midafternoon
the window's open
and a breeze blows through
my heart jumps
as the doorbell rings
you’re here

you’re safe.
