Proximity

lyrics

Proximity warns my songs
that coming is the storm,
(that coming is the)
so why is it
just drizzling?
Beauty spend this day with me.

Proximity warns my thoughts
that you may never come,
(you may never have)
but someone's pulled at my sleeve.
And I can easily forgive.

The overview is lost
in between your teeth.
There is a needle razor sharp
which sows you up with me.
Togetherness: a tapestry.
What if I can't be
near enough to hear the sound
of this falling tree.
How can I realise who you are?

Proximity lit the bombs
that you had brought along
(that you had swallowed)
carefully.
One long breath and gone's the fear.

Proximity drew the dawn
upon a foggy pond
where there's no way to breathe.
And now my mouth is full of bees.

The overview is lost
in between your teeth.
There is a needle razor sharp
which sows you up with me.
Togetherness: a tapestry.
What if I can't be
near enough to hear the sound
of this falling tree.
How can I realise who you are?
