truth stands naked
vulnerable and alone
shaking, shuddering
searching for home

our breath sometimes shallow
words caught in our throat
fumbles and missteps
a part of the road

our humanity before us
letting go of the past
embracing a future
where only love lasts

good hearts and good minds
will shine the light
for those who stand tall
and take up the fight

lift up your sister
together we are strong
because if we try
we can do no wrong

For Dave and Velvet

secret nights
for the weirdos
come in from the storm

forget it all
no responsibility
no accountability

just ecstasy and rhythm
and the world goes away

just me and you now
flowing melodies
folding dreams

take me with you
into your secret world
lead me into your garden
of snowdrops and curls

time is endless
tell the old lady i crashed
and dance here with you
while we play and get smashed
