.
The air is visible around you
Rising up and off your lips
In slow currents
And I watch
As your face is framed in its
Slow currents

Drifting curls, a trailing path
A long drag becomes
A tress of blue and ash
If it is born in flames
Then we should let it burn
Burn as brightly as we can
If it’s got to end
Then let it end in flames
Let it burn all the way down

The air is visceral around us
Turning in its simple steps
On slow currents
And I watch
As it pirouettes and spins
In slow motion
A long drag comes
A slow dance
In a halo of ember

If it is born in flames
Then we should let it burn
Burn as brightly as we can
If it’s got to end
Then let it end in flames
Let it burn all the way down
All the way down
And if this is ever meant to end
Then I hope it ends where it began
So hot with love we burned our hands
.
DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL
as is the following:
.
We watch the season pull up its own stakes
And catch the last weekend of the last week
Before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced,
Another sun soaked season fades away
You have stolen my heart

Invitation only, grand farewells
Crash the best one, of the best ones
Clear liquor and cloudy eyed, too early to say goodnight
You have stolen my heart

And from the ballroom floor we are in celebration
One good stretch before our hibernation
Our dreams assured and we all, will sleep well
Sleep well

You have stolen
You have stolen my
You have stolen my heart

I watch you spin around in your highest heels
You are the best one, of the best ones
We all look like we feel
You have stolen my
You have stolen my heart
