Imagine That - Ani Difranco

imagine that i'm on stage
under a watchtower of punishing light.
and in the haze is your face bathed in shadow
and what's beyond you is hidden from sight.
and somebody right now is yawning
and watching me like a tv.
and i've been frantically piling up sandbags
against the flood waters of fatigue and insecurity.
and that's when i hear my guitar singing
and so i just start singing along.
and somewhere in my chest all the noise just gets crushed by the song. imagine that i'm at your mercy,
imagine that you are at mine.
just pretend that i've been standing here,
watching you watching me all of this time.
imagine that you are the weather
in the tiny snow globe of this song.
and i am a statue of liberty one inch long.
so here i am at my most hungry,
and here i am at my most full.
and here i am waving a red cape, locking eyes with a bull.
imagine that i'm on stage
under a watchtower of punishing light.
and in the haze is your face bathed in shadow
and what's beyond you is hidden from sight.
