The Penetrating View

from Edge of Today by Atom Orr

lyrics

Looking up to the ceiling in my bed
Replaying everything done and said
Like a bird flying in the sky
Doesn’t know nothing underneath him or why
Just the air in his wings and hunger in his heart

It is not how much you are wanting to know
But the distance you are willing to go

Fly away, far away to the penetrating view
There’s nothing I can say that will give us a new day
Of making shadows on the ground of me and you

Running around in your Summer dress
Taking all what comes despite the rest
A simple life you dare to try
Leaving the fire and the fury of us behind
With your wheels running down the miles
Your smile has even the mountains beguiled

It is not how much you let your feelings show
It is the distance you are willing to go

Fly away, far away to the penetrating view
There’s nothing I can say that will give us a new day
to leave imprints on the grass of me and you

There are still stains and immortal remains on your Summer dress
We go to the wonder, into the mystery we lay
I built my life around a bird that flew away
No matter…doing crazy things for love is always the right thing to do
