lyrics

Cassie wakes with the setting sun
paints her toenails one by one
and says to the mirror
tonight will be better
she hums a little to herself
one glass one plate there’s no one else
but lean a little nearer
her smile is clearer
and her head still spinning with her dreams
her world is not quite what it seems

Tom washes off the dirt
clean fingers tucking in a shirt
that makes his eyes more blue
(so mum said, it must be true)
he wonders idly should he shave
his dinner in the microwave
spins half-forgotten
his toes tap a rhythm
and his head still spinning with his dreams
his world is not quite what it seems

and maybe they will meet
maybe they will dance
maybe on this night
these hearts will take a chance…again.

Cassie fumbles with her keys
her mind is like a honey bee
buzzing with excitement
from saying what her heart meant
Tom stumbles through the door
thoughts upside down with so much more
than he dreamt he would find there
he’s never felt so clear

and their heads still spinning with their dreams
in a world that’s not quite what it seems
in separate worlds these dreamers dance
still waiting for that second chance.

beauty is... tears in laughter, small joys even in the midst of sorrow, a drifting feather, a cold beach, the wind over the ocean, cold fingers on the skin making your heart warm, storm clouds and lightning, rain, the sun through green leaves in the morning, voices singing, the rhythm of a drum, the beat of your heart, the sigh of your breath and moments of pure relaxation...and a ukulele helps. ... more
