light this city – fear of heights lyrics

at times
when my mind wanders with my feet
my thoughts reach their destination before my body
like a recurring dream
i find myself traveling to lands i thought beyond my reach
so new and different from my actual hideaway
and before i return to that same familiar gate
words come together magnetically
clearing way through the mess of obscurity
the knot of doubts restraining me
they form perfect letters to you in my imagination
and when finally confessed
grant my release

bodies bare of pretence
timid and undressed
do you mean to win me with these praises and offenses
why ignore me if you profess to adore me
i didn’t think you could stand the sight of me
at least you spoke honestly
my refusal was based on damaged pride
not an aversion to your advances

obsessed with visions of the world
of night in distant places
what lies outside of constancy
outside of these fences
p-ssing the blurry lights
it’s not my eyes
it’s the world that’s unfocused
distracted
i’m well acquainted with your inelegance and vice
you’re still more graceful than the night
that falls in each city with a sprawling indelicacy
i’m straying further from home
from my safe routine
and you’re trying to find your own
can you blame me for inexperience
just listen
it’s all the same

bodies bare of pretence
timid and undressed
do you mean to win me with these praises and offenses
why ignore me if you profess to adore me

somehow i’ve been lifted high above the tops of trees
from this frightening height
the buildings seem to be flattened in the streets
i tell myself
don’t look down
there’s no way to plummet charmingly
and when i do i know you’ll say
what a pity
she’s just not what i expected her to be
but i can’t let my fear of heights get the best of me
as my mind and body journey together in a parallel reality
i realize that if i’m falling
at least i’m free
i never want my feet to take me home
