she is an island

she is fiery

and he is a high land

he is tough like ivory

. . .

and there is

something

about you —

is there

nothing

about you?

. . .

and our love

is fire

not a dove

but it flies higher

{out of reach}

. . .

tonight he crashes

and he burns

and tonight she flashes

and she turns

{in and away}

. . .

tonight is the night

you fell in love

tonight is the night

you question that love

. . .

that's the loneliness speaking

. . .

and there is nobody that loves you

there is nobody that cares

there is nobody that shoves you

you are just there

{why are you here?}

. . .

is it love?

or loneliness?

or need?

{all of these

and none of these}

. . .

face

your

fears

and place

your

ears

somewhere

you can

hear

{open your eyes and your ears, just listen}
