High rise in the afternoon
White sheets wrapped in our cocoon
High enough to feel the concrete sway
Got no reason to presume
Heart as heavy as the moon
Satellite around you every day

Skylark raises the alarm
I lie in your open arms
Close enough to feel your change of heart
You tried to keep me safe from harm
But now you ran out of charm
And you say it was better at the start
I’d stay forever if I could
It’s late and I misunderstood
I misunderstood

Skylark blazes through the dawn
I’ll chase him until I’m worn
Forever trying to find his broken song
Twice shy it’s not hard to do
And I think I always knew
My mother said it’s better to be strong
