Somnambulista

Long hours spent sleeping in the shade Of my favorite oak tree not too sure if I really awoke but I stood up and climbed up in the branches There I found a house built just for me Every dimension fit perfectly To my hand and to my bones I acquainted myself and settled in Waste away the days most pleasantly High in the trees where no one can ever find me Everything was just as it should be Each tiny box especially made for one thing As this thought drifted out my door I heard a noise and knew at once you had found me Just as I had always dreamed Dark was your hair and softly the rains starts falling

How can I bleed if I'm already drained Why should I cry if it's going to rain Walking on eggshells seeing no end Keep it all steady or the walls could fall in It's a special kind of lonely Nobody sleeps like the ill informed The pillowed silence behind the closed door Sucking on the poison and I'm sorry again Somehow you are strong and a constant victim It's a special kind of lonely I'm sure you don't think about me When I'm not around Try to find a way to only speak truth When you no longer care you've got nothing to lose Walking on eggshells and seeing no end Keep it all steady or the walls could fall in It's a special kind of lonely I'm sure you don't think about me

Seems so long ago We were explorers of the first fallen snow Remember we made a map Packed for the woods, never coming back Oh to dream like that Somehow we slipped apart Different schools, brand new starts Things will fall apart Distance grew like a weed Up toward the sun till we couldn't see How did we get so far Apart from where we started off I don't know where you are I know the truth is in The tiniest seeds opening Watch it start again
