about

This song is written after I had a dream that I was a moth, I am not going to share it's meaning - I will allow for the listener to describe what it means to them.

lyrics

I had a dream
of big blue wings
that folded and molded back into a chrysalis
tied to a string
around her finger
when i see them
i only see backwards
like mirrors into mirrors
do you see me at all:
a tiny moth with a great big heart
and a really small body.

they flap their wings
so they can't be seen
for who they are
just who they want to be
an allusive memory
shrouded in longing for a story
before they fall asleep
for eyes that find their safety
in their way through the darkness

If you were a hand
and I were a moth
then I would fly
'cause you and I are only divided
by the number of times
we've danced around the sun.

do you believe in second lives
because i've known you many more
than one lifetime time -
I was born from a seed
then i became a slipper in the trees
and I dream that one day:
you will be my family.


If you were a hand
and I were a moth
then I would fly
'cause you and I are only divided
by the number of times
we've danced around the sun.
