Teach me to ride the wind
and away we'll go
my shadow is lost this close to the sun
but my wings are fine

Save your needle and thread
for when you tear my heart in two
and a laugh breaks
into a thousand little pieces

You'll be waiting
where dreams can be remembered
between sleep and awake
...the only place you love me

The second star to the right
will lead us nowhere
but death is an awfully big adventure
... the only place you love me

Kate Hanley said...

Very cool. At first I was thinking Icarus but then I got it.

Candy said...

Lovely. The first line took me. "Teach me to ride the wind.."

JeffScape said...

@Kate Hanley: That was, actually, a subtle reference to Icarus. So you got it twice! ;)

@Candy: Thank you, but I can't take credit for all the words, merely their arrangement. Some of that is J.M. Barrie verbatim.
