LYRICS CHASING ATOMS

01 End Of Chapter One

Sadness sometimes brings
Silence into new beginnings
We’ll start slowly

End of chapter one
Isn’t the end of the book

We’re smiling quietly
Breathing without fear
This is the moment
Our hearts beat here

Whatever you think might scare me, won’t

Atomic cores, electrons, neutrons
Dancing through time and space
Things will fall right into place

End of chapter one
Isn’t the end of the book

 

02 Owl On My Windowsill

The owl sits on my windowsill

I live in a house that’s
On a bridge that’s
In a tent that’s 
On a lake

I pet the yellow cat
And while I’m doing that
I see the things I don’t look at

The owl got me some presents
From the woods
Attractive to the eyes
And soothing to the smell

And I clap my hands to see
And I clap my hands to hear
And I clap my hands to feel
If I’m awake

Temple indicates
The side of the head
Behind the eyes

The owl sits on my windowsill

And when I want
To go down
The basement stairs
I simply turn on the light

 

03 Too Loud

My heart’s too loud
And I haven’t got enough tears

It’s all math and chemistry
And the word for word is word
But still it’s all a mystery
At least I guess to me

My heart’s too loud
And I haven’t got enough tears

This is something that is happening now
All warranties expired
I’ll keep this moment anyhow
No drama required

I do not know who I
Do not know where I
Do not know what
I’m doing

My heart’s too loud
And I haven’t got enough tears

Too beautiful
Too precious
Too clear

 

04 Grass Stained

Life owns me

My elbows are grass-stained
I got sticks in my hair
My knees are all dirty
I got bug bites everywhere

I was so confused to be part of this

I climb a pine tree
Make myself disappear
The comforting voices
Are the ones I cannot hear

I was so afraid to fall asleep

The air is too heavy
Search the maze for the prize
The night is imploding
I hope day will soon arise

I was so relieved to discover choice

The years make me younger

Life owes me

 

05 Waltz For Me

And she’ll create a new name for me
And all the stones and rocks
Will rest for me
And all the dandelions and snowflakes
Will dance for me
And all the blossoms and pearls
Will kiss for me

And all the thunders and storms
Will fight for me
And all the glaciers and oceans
Will move for me
And all the ants and bees
Will work for me
And all the rivers and creeks
Will flow for me

And all the rhythms and tunes
Will play for me
And all the skies and plants
Will grow for me
And all the sunsets and dawns
Will smile for me
And all the moons and seas
Will glow for me

And she’ll create a new name for me
And all the dandelions and snowflakes
Will dance for me
And all the magnetic fields
Will oscillate for me
And all the fiery hearts will burn for me

 

06 Tornado

You leave
I leave
We leave

There would have been
So many more words
To be written on our blanket

There would have been
So many more seeds
And hours to be planted

You leave
I leave
We leave

Love is the eye of our life’s tornado

You leave
I leave
We leave

Time is not on my side
Time is my enemy
Its agents will abandon me
And make my perfume on your pillow
Slowly fade

You leave
I leave
We leave

Love is the eye of our life’s tornado

24 Flowers a day

Whereas I would bring you one

Lavender
Aster
Bitter sweet

Ever lasting

 

08 Personal Politics

I burn the emperor’s paper crown
I free all monsters and beasts
I tear the cathedrals and castles down
I kiss the doubting priests

This will not be televised
This will not be shared

I paint all the billboards white
I evacuate the tower
I deorbit the satellite
I sabotage the hour

This will not be televised
This will not be shared

I blow up the abacus
I bribe the chief engineers
I remain anonymous
I dance with all errors and fears

 

09 Porcelain Queen

The queen was born a queen
A princess she’s never been

The map she got
It isn’t accurate
There’s too much
Sand in the hourglass

Take off your heavy ermine
The golden garments
And the crown
Slip into your heart’s treasury

One of her new strings of beads
Is made of lovely yellow stones
It’s amber

The queen was born a queen
A princess she’s never been

Take off your heavy ermine
The golden garments
And the crown
Slip into your heart’s treasury

The queen was born a queen
A princess she’s never been

There’s too much
Sand in the hourglass

Free the princess

 

10 Green

We weave an ocean
A gentle breeze caresses our skin

One drop that holds every other drop
One moment

We see the day fade
Obscure light caresses our skin

One ray that holds every other ray
One moment

The night draws the curtain
Darkness caresses our skin

Our love holds every love

 

11 Flame Retardant Heart

A heavy storm
Dashes waves over our boat
Its sails are sewed together
With thin threads of hope

Don’t delove me please don’t

My heart hurts
But I can’t replace it
I’d need a bullet-proof chest
And a flame-retardant heart

Arrows poisoned with silence
Hurt the most

I flee into the present
I flee into this here

Don’t delove me please don’t

My heart hurts
But I can’t replace it
I’d need a bullet-proof chest
And a flame-retardant heart

Arrows poisoned with silence
Hurt the most

I guess I’m not
The only lonely person here
I guess I’m not alone
