lyrics

My room of windows lets me live like the sky
Light for day and dark for night
Two walls of glass to see the moon and stars
Two walls of wood to fuel my moods of fire

But in between the cracks is where I sleep
With only quilts of old to hush me when I weep
In between my thoughts is where I keep
My photographs of old to hush me when I weep

In between these walls is where I kneel
With golden painted eyes to hide me when I feel
In between my hands is where she fights
Her strings of metal fingers tangled up with mine

in between, in between

In between their songs is when I hear
Unwritten melodies to silence me in fear
In between the cracks is where I sleep
Waiting for your breath to hush me when I weep
