Against the window of my heart,
Without sight of end or start.
All the colors turn to gray,

If fate were not my foe,
I'd lock you up inside me
And never let you go...

When the week before in the middle of the night,
The water was warm and the air was still light.
And the cops were out patrolling the night.
But this week at the exact same time,
The tide was out and the beach was mine.
The water was cold but police were still there,
Looking and searching for those who dare,
To think that summer will come back to them soon,
Like the ebbing tides and the waning m

To ship a world
Across the sky
Faster, ever faster
To avoid disaster
Bubble wrap will do
We'll call it atmosphere
Now send it off
Into the blue
And watch it disappear
And when it reaches
I hope you will enjoy
We've let it go
In such a mess
It might arrive destroyed.
