Glendora - Alessi's Ark

the kids on the corner they're learning the bad trends
with their fingers raised to the skies
the homeless and hungry they're so short of money
but they keep praying for passersby
the modern and classy they pretend to be trashy
and it puts a grin on my face
i live with a lover, his eyes scream "i love her"
i love when he sleeps at my place

oh baby, don't sleep, just yet, just yet.
there are things that i've left to tell you, yes, yes.

oh i could touch forever his islands and treasure
but i fear one day this will end
i'm livin too quickly says, oh, far too many
but aren't they just movin too slow?
you say i'm the sun, but to me, you're the one
and i dream that one day this won't end
i always think of him, i pretty much love him
to me, he's the ultimate best

oh baby, don't sleep, just yet, just yet.
there are things i have left to tell you, yes, yes.

oh baby, don't sleep, just yet, just yet.
there are things i have left to tell you, yes...

baby, baby, baby...

i'll stand behind the curtain
i'll end with a closer
here you are
here you are

(pass the b_tton, pass the thread
tapestry tapping your pretty, pretty head
pass the paint, pass the brush
sit there still while i draw you, in a rush
you don't see what you do to me
you don't see what you do to me

the reeds and the weeds tangle my feet
but you are the pulse
i follow your beat
in the cytoplasm asphyxiation
you feed me with your light your rhythms

when you sleep i watch your chest
once you rise with the sun in the west
copy your breathing rhythms so i can be more like you
learn your lucid dreaming so we can both sleep there too

in dreams we face an identical view
an identical view)
