hotel rooms and borrowed beds she indulges while i pretend that if i have enough to drink there will be no room to think about the end or who i am sleeping til the sun slants low narrow alleys, hidden plazas, don’t know where i go she helps me disappear a day, a week, a year far from home, all alone barcelona let me in i am tired of who i’ve been let me be somebody else barcelona give me shelter in your shadows and your spells so i can leave myself again before the new century made her shine we ran away and we stayed up all through the night picking random subway stops not knowing where we would get off finding life at morning light barcelona let me in i am tired of who i’ve been let me be somebody else barcelona give me shelter in your shadows and your spells before i have to be myself again let me try another life lose me on a taxi ride put my pieces back together tell me we will live forever let me try another life lose me on a taxi ride tell me we will live forever tell me we will live forever tell me we will live forever barcelona let me in i am tired of who i’ve been let me be myself again barcelona give me shelter in your shadows and your spells so i can leave myself again barcelona..... barcelona.....

it feels like years since i last really slept i got chills through my skin from nervous sweat accelerating, hallucinating, digging in my nails but one thing i have: they don’t see me yet they will fake a smile, hunting all the time, never close their eyes but what they don’t know, what they never gonna know, what they don’t know: how to catch me such a white knuckle high, when i burn too fast i’m addicted, to the rush, i’m addicted to the crash dues are paid, my mistakes are made, and all the money spent and there’s no one now who can hold me back they will fake a smile, hunting all the time, never close their eyes they could know it all, they can write the code, they can take control they could scout around, nose to the ground, try to drag me down but what they don’t know, what they never gonna know, what they don’t know: is how to catch me all my meters are broken down, i run super hot but i’d rather burn, manic up and down, than not burn at all oh my body burns, my belly churns, but i like it this hard i wear jewelry made of scars i won’t stay quiet in the shed i’ll stop when i am dead they will fake a smile, hunting all the time, never close their eyes but what they don’t know, what they never gonna know, what they don’t know: how to catch me

you, sun flare in my eyes you flicker on my skin you, lightning down my spine you whisper down the wire if only you could be with me and feel what i feel we could light it up, light it up, light it up and watch it burn, let it burn let it burn, let it burn we crackle in the heat we, hunted but complete we, wearing fire rings we float above the street so come with me, i’m all you need, tear up your history c’mon let’s light it up, light it up, light it up and watch it burn, let it burn let it burn, let it burn if this is what it costs to change, then make the cut, i’ll take the blame whatever parts remain ashes will rain and we will blow away as we rise into the sky mixing matter, you and i, ten seconds together forever time and space untethered edges feathered, surrender, it’s now or never, so close your eyes, cross wires, spark fire and watch it burn let it burn, let it burn, let it burn

“what’s your name”... so it begins and it’s okay if this is where it ends strangers can tell the truth so say what you see, and i’ll remember you each one fleeting it keeps repeating our patterns weaving and none of it will last.... so we love, so we love young mirrors, these faces, eyes up, ready for the seeds someday they’ll see the roots they grew into me we are daughters now, but soon ancestors we chain a lifeline, and we know that it will last so we love, so we love so we love, so we love i was sitting on the beach, a week before my wedding to the wrong guy and this man comes up to me, this crazy looking dude, i didn’t know if he was going to ask for money, or my number... but he put his hands together like he was going to pray and he bowed and he said the exact words i needed to hear i swear, the exact phrase word for word and then he walked off he just walked off so we love, so we love so we love, so we love
