Her words and sounds gave me a second go
She was my savior just in time
Her rhythms always keep me on my toes
They’re the last thing on my mind.
Before I fell back down like glass and broke
She caught me in suspension
I slow down and cling to the heavy rope
As we reach the fourth dimension.
She carried me up, up, and away
In February air, past meteorites
We took a portal to the first day
Of fluxing, flowing rivers of ice.
The dark used to squeeze from all sides
I sat in the quiet, the deafening
But now I’m speeding as she drives my soul
And my heart celebrates the listening.
If you carry her banner, we’re in the same sea
Keep your face up; look how far we’ve come
Whether in Siberia, where the fence is low, or at the cactus in the valley
I know we’re the lucky ones.
