Empty Skies

Look in my eyes,
shocked with terror.
Paralyze ‘n’,
pull me over.
I’m so dumb,
and you’re so clever.
Scrutinize,
my best endeavour.
Come the day,
when I will leave,
at my Pride,
you will be.

Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
Meet you there,
you know I’m there.

I left the sun in Africa
to be with you, to fly
cross the oceans
licking flame
every movement
speaks your name.
come the day
when i will leave
at my Pride
you will be

Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
