lyrics

seven stories up i can see a shadow
playing on a wall it's a copycat that
matches every move that i make so perfectly

spring is in the air and the moon's a sickle
swinging through the sky like a pendulum
suspended from a point outside our galaxy

swimming on the glass are a thousand colors
born out of the lights though they have no mother
bend into a blur as we turn the corner
meet us on the other side

people that we meet offer up a smile
they wear it well though it's not the style
maybe they forgot to put on their apathy

for just one night let's not look down
at the street below
pray this buoyancy
will never go
away

coffee and a book at a corner table
bottom of the cup with a corporate label
drink it to the dregs and you'll die like socrates

out into the night like a pack of wolves
recaffeinated minds make a manic move
we're dancing to a tune that no one can hear
but you and me

enter at the base of the tallest tower
elevator up nearly half an hour
we're smaller than we thought we were and that's ok

out onto the deck sip a glass of wine
the city is asleep but it doesn't mind us
watching as it breathes and dreams of better days

for just one night let's not look down
at the street below
we'll pray this buoyancy
will never go
away
