Like Bats

{hang like bats
asleep and dream
dreams of us
as one again}

you watch me crawl
take it all
tit for tat
and all that stuff
but you have to know
this isn’t me
it isn’t who i want to be

she steals the sun
and filters me
i lay bare
she thinks I’m free
but my life isn’t light
it’s so much more
and i’ve found my wake up call

scratch and itch
i can’t let go
i try so hard
to make it so
in the dark i find much more
a place of my own
where our love still grows

and now the sun starts to rise on a brand new day
one in which my heart is open to all you say
we dreamed that one day we’d find this place
the closer we get the longer we stay
spread your wings and fly to me
i’ll meet you in the twilight of the evergreen
we’ll hang like bats and sleep all day
when nighttime comes it’s our today

Like Bats
