Before the Morning


I woke up weak today
Needing your voice
i crawled to the speakers
to hide from the problems
i woke up sick today
Cured by your voice
turn up the volume

I dress up bright tonight
Feeling so alive tonight
Living through the neon light

turn up the volume
drown out the problems
flying tonight, under the lights nothing wrong
crawl to the speakers and turn you on
turn it up, my heart in the speakers

in a house so hollow
im losing, losing
but under a white sheet sky
im feeling, feeling

when the radios go out
ill be sober by the morning
summer all in bloom
summers ending soon, im enchanced by this strange fruit

In a new sea so mysterious,
im diving, diving
in a current so strong
im dying, dying

I'll walk the line with light on my skin
Enchanced with a forbidden fruit
just turn up the volume
my head in the speakers
my heart in your voice
on the dancefloor
im speeding, speeding
towards the morning

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
