Gravity

~ A Figment ~




















Little Boy, let me wipe the clouds off your face,
Look, I wanna offer you a smile for free.
Let´s share a laughter in your father´s backyard,
Let´s be just the way your heart yearns to be.

Hey Dude, take your glittery glove off that hand,
Come rock with me, or just walk´n´talk.
Please show me around your magical mind,
Open a gateway to your soul, I won´t balk!

Tell me, what do you think?
Don´t you think that could do?
Do you think that could feel alright?

Tell me, what do you think?
Don´t you know that would do?
Do you think that would be just fine?

Wizard Man, let me blow the dust off your eyes,
Now, don´t you point your wand at me!
It´s not the reflection of fame I seek,
It´s the man behind the mirror I wanna see.

We may sit in the dark, switch off and relax,
If the spotlights should burn all-too bright.
And if bizzo truth-tellers haunt you too hard,
We´ll fight back at them, side by side.

Did you notice the tulips still blossom at night,
When you happen to dance around?
Did you notice that migrant birds turn back north,
When you happen to sing aloud?

Good Lord! Step back and take a good look,
It´s your happiness that is at stake!
Get rid of that pack of goldvorous rats,
Kick them out, before it´s too late!

If you make up your mind to fight your ghosts,
You can tide over blood burning rain.
I´ll be there to heal your stiches and wounds,
To seal all those scars and pains.

Tell me, what do you think?
Don´t you think that could do?
Do you think that could feel alright?

Tell me, what do you think?
Don´t you know that would do?
Do you think that would be just fine?
