SUN: Singing and Singing

lyrics

Who are we?
Those who are left,
are left alone.
Are we still real
When there is no one to see?

You don’t seem to see all of me,
Only what is dark.
Why must I become the rose
That only shows its thorns?

Pruning back what I thought,
I thought was growth.
Fragile branch, fragile hands,
my hands…
Hands that held,
Mouths that spoke,
Close.

I don’t know why
I don’t know why
I don’t know why
You would turn now,
You would turn away
From what we’ve built.
What was meant to be a shelter,
Now is just a wall.

What we once held sacred in our eyes,
Now is what divides us,
What defines our separate lives.
Seeds we planted,
Watered, tended,
Try to bloom in dark.

Desert flowers fully bloom
Though no man sees.
I am not held,
I am tied to your eyes.

I can be even when you don’t see.

I can be even when you don’t see,
Singing and singing and singing.
