I don’t know why my feelings are so strong.
It’s as if some giant crane jerked me aloft
And swings me through the softness of the night.

I don’t blame you if you’re scared, for so am I.
It’s as if I’m deep beneath the sea:
Though life is vivid, I can hardly breathe.

Free me from my anguish; come with me!
The two of us can wing across our skies
Gliding where we will in joy and love.
