Black waves crash beneath my feet
as we dance on the edge of forever.
Red leaves rustle in the breeze
high above me, through the trees
and we fall in the dark, together.
Falling, falling, falling down
into a cloud of smoke.
I open my eyes, now I can see
all the wonders there could be,
and then the voices spoke.
Whisper, whisper, in my ear
the secrets of my heart,
My future life and even past,
until the voices cease at last
and my world is torn apart.
And then I wake to our descent
into the black below
But then the waves flood the shore,
drowning the seaside, forevermore,
and the memories that we know.
I spread my wings, now we're birds
and we've learned to fly.
Above the waves and cliffs, we rise,
saying goodbye to words and lies,
and we soar across the sky.
I gaze below to see
every bush, tree, and hedge.
We fold our wings and make a dive
to where we live our fragile lives
and we dance along the edge.
