Starfall

(oehler/goedken)
A penny for your thoughts
As the morning wind moves in
Like a cold reminder
Of where I’ve been
Feel bad collisions
Beneath my bones
Hard decisions that
I have honed

Drawing air
Before the coming flood
Time to ready aim
I feel it in my blood

In a game
Where the shadows play
Where the lions flee
And all that’s left is gray
I’m steeling my nerve
Nowhere left to go
Taking chances while
Leaning into every curve

Daybreak’s left behind
As the jealous gales blow in
Like a cold reminder
From where I’ve been
Sealed suspicions
That I have known
vile volition
No more my own

As you must know
I have learned so much
The way I fall
Before the lightest touch

As the stars fall
They shine down on me
The shooting stars
That slash like a knife
As these stars fade
They rain down on me
The skies fall and wage
A battle for this life

When the stars fall
They shine down on me
The shooting stars
That move through the light
As the stars fade
They rain down on me
The skies fade and wage
A battle for the night
