Freefall

Tonight my timing’s right in tune
Move in waves like light from the moon
See lanterns out to mark my way
No more illusions pull me astray
Tonight my timing’s right in tune

From this course
Nothing can pull me away
No stars light the city
No suns shine the day
I lost you once
But we remain bound
And my freefall follows the sound

Precise, the journey’s never been
The pristine arc, it isn’t my friend
Still watchmen wave me right on through
Tonight no one will keep me from you
Precise, the journey’s never been

Passion is setting the stage
The cell holding me, it isn’t a cage
Crossfire from the lost and drawn
Shows me how to stave off the dawn
Passion is setting the stage

I’ll cross one more night and then
I know I’ll never fly again

EO – This one went through a few revisions.  I originally had written a very synthwavy, 80’s sort of thing, but it never quite fit.  Then I started writing a more housy, minimal thing with a lot of triplets and it fit a lot better.
