We’re The Chosen

don’t hide your truth
let it speak true
let it free you

told you i’m the one
even in the dark
i see you

told you we’re the chosen
i’ll be your sun
since your heart is frozen

you’re both of us
like our souls were woven
i can be your solace
you can be beholden

told you i’m the one
even in the dark
i’m golden

For Me

1EF90E2F-C008-4159-9710-076FD48F7409

focus all your focus on me
grab all your lenses
turn them on me
if i dropped my smile
would you catch it for me

you love life
but do you love it for me
do you love me for me
darling are you living for me
breathing for me

drove you to the edge
are you falling for me

if i’m ever lost
are you coming for me
tell me now
that’s the darkness
coming for me

stay a while
we’re waves
not flames
we won’t die
seeing far and wide
like eagle eyes

stay alive
after night
in the afterlife
after you and i
there’s you and us
the sweetest rush
and the aftermath

Paradise

paradise (n): a state of supreme happiness; bliss

*****

IMG_2591

that’s paradise
seen it hanging in your eyes
like the moon
you’re the influence
i’m under now
sailing the tide
i don’t like chasers
but you can hunt me down
that’s your canopy
take me down
your love’s electric
strike me now

and i don’t want gold or roses
just the bliss we’ve found
and you don’t want the world
i’m your planet
spin me round

On The Edge

4e5102201d189356dc9fa46b0a2f09b6

you got me swaying
like i’m tipsy
can’t walk far
without tripping

on the edge
and i’m slipping
catch me on the other side
hands all over, gripping

take my soul
for safekeeping
keep watch
while i’m sleeping

it’s your love
that i’m sipping
on the edge
and i’m leaping

If It Suits

IMG_2199

i’m the diver
you’re the parachute

colourblind
you know my sight is mute

but you make my spectrum
absolute

we can keep on falling
if it suits

i’ll bank my all in
yes we suit

linking souls like hands
we let the light in, water roots

jumping cloud to cloud
like palace roofs

Stay

IMG_2073

i feel you drifting
lightyears from where i stay
our centre’s shifting
if i begged would you stay?

if i begged you
would you stay and
throw your heathen thoughts away?

who led your heart astray
to make you execute my joy
in the broad of day
that’s my sun
turning into bolts of grey
as i watch you drifting
lightyears from where i lay
if i bribed you
would you stay?
