I need to live through each horizon

I need to draw what’s in my heart

I need to reach my deepest secrets

I need to tear them all apart

I need to draw a million hearts

My multicolored wishing well

I need to draw the children playing

I need to draw their little dog

Their kites, reaching up to heavens

Those days of sunlight, days of fog

I need to draw my hopes and fears

I need to fine some shape for them

I need to draw my dreams, all over

The daylight dreaming, R.E.M.

I need to picture what I’ve lost

I need them sealed back on my paper

to live them again and all over

I need to bear and stand that cost

I need to draw, for I am hollow

I need to write, to leave behind

I need the whisper of a Someone

To blow a warm reality off them…
