fear of light


Trapped inside a theater
of faces I defend
I say they're only stories
but I am what I pretend
to be

You show me a lover
who has wandered
toward the flash
I'll show you a layer
in the sediment
of ash

All I want to do
is melt back into you
still I fight
fear of light

It's easier
to focus on a figment
in the sky
than look
into the secret
in someone else's eyes
and I know why

This fevered dream
this suffocating night
keeps my heart asleep
in fear of light

All I want to do
is melt back into you
still i fight
fear of light
