Traffic lights that buzz all night from there above -
It's only I can hear the sounds of morning stars unsung.
Through quiet shortcuts back, lights snap and fade in black
In all the tiny alleyways ahead.

You've been what I'm thinking about
I'm swimming in the smell of your perfume that I've imagined in the air.
Remembering the time, with socks and shoes untied
Running naked through the sprinklers after midnight in the park.

Considering the air across my face
And all the pretty things we used to make
You're a kite string priestess - bread, sweet butter and wine!

The house is dark outside, but your window's open wide
I know that you're inside beneath a carpeting of night
And images refract, and splash across the glass,
And I see myself projected in your living room again.

I want to wake you up to see you smile
But all the time, I know it's been a while
And I don't know why I went without saying goodbye!
