Bird beneath the midnight sky
As on my lonely couch I lie,
I hear thee singing in the dark,
Why sing not I?

I’ve been searching

For the sun to come out

But it burned out years ago.

 

I was surrounded by such beauty

I could not take my eyes off of you

But I wasn’t enough to captivate you for long.

 

My heart used to beat for you out of time

You were like a flower that st...
