this way

cradled by your eyes that see
i am breathing through my skin
and while the world is moving ‘round
and walling people out and in
i cannot point my fingers
to where it’s gone
‘cause i need all of them right now
to play this song

and something here is so silent
at the dawn of every day
it takes away all the noise we make
to walk with you this way

and we walk and we talk
like catching up with time
and the shoes we wear in all weathers
they carry us so fine
and i’m not saying it saves the world
but each step seems to matter

when we talk of trees
and we sing of seas
and of light which colours time
and they say
nothing ever stays
but they feel like
forever
these days

all thoughts in my head
like to crawl some more
when i go to bed
and in my sleep they like to creep
deep inside my pores

but something now is so silent
at the dusk of every day
it takes away all the noise i make
to walk with you this way
