"What he said, the night before"

-

-

--Time

-

------(breath)

-

Pushing me

--Willing me

----Taking me

------Making me

-

--Time

-

------(breath)

-

Jittering

--Beats and flutters

----Wings upon

------My anxiousness

-

I see your face,

----recall your warmth

and hate today

-

--"Make tomorrow, today"

the song tells me

--And it's not what he meant –

but God, if I could do that….

-

--And the beat comes back,

Into me,

--And I feel all my strength

-

build

-

----(breath)

-

------And build

-

------(breath)

-

------(breath)

-

--------------And return

-

-

But it's all bravado –

---my heart is captain

------And it is not master of time

So it beats and waits and beats

--and waits

--------and beats

-------------and waits…..
