Lily White

Don't be sad
Lily white.
Your magic carpet leaves tonight.
Some supernova out of sight
Blew its mind.
And left a sparkling stage
For fantasies brand new.
Where all lost birds
Of paradise flew.

Please be bad
Lily white.
I need to meet you
When you light
Your fuse.
So join me
In our stellar cruise.
And we'll burn in passion
Across the skies.
Start a fashion
To realise
All ecstasy and pain.
Our wild imaginings
Will colour the mundane.

Lily white
Drink with me
The freedom
Of unreality.
To dance on the waves
Of a moonstruck sea.
Or in candlelit caves
Where our treasures could be.
Let your hair
Catch the breeze.
To bring all beauty
To its knees.
A scent of Heaven.
A sun kissed kite.
Oh, fly with me
My Lily white.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
