"To Know What I Mean"

I scrape the bottom of the clouds
From way down under
Shining pink and mauve alight
Meant for another

And as the valley flits in my mouth
I sink in my mind

This is my appeal
I can't describe what I feel
My most colorful words are pale
To what's happening down here
Am I the only one
Who follows the horizon
Please tell me what you think
'Cause I'd give anything to know what I mean

Sometimes I only want starlight
Or the girth of the city
Sometimes I only see your arms
Or a shared fantasy

And then I'm hit by a strange force
That goes down my spine

This is my appeal
I can't describe what I feel
My most colorful words are pale
To what I feel in the air
Am I the only one
Who rises with setting suns
Please tell me what you think
'Cause I'd give anything to know what I mean

To know why I'm covered in tears
When I feel so happy
To know why I feel so hollow
When waking from daydreams

So when all the stars appear
I know I'll be fine

This is my appeal
I can't describe what I feel
My most colorful words are pale
To what I see out there
Am I the only one
Who revels in the undone
Please tell me what you think
'Cause I'd give anything to know what I mean
