in this world of fantasies it is hard to touch each other for a moment it is hard to find each other in this dance of shadows in your eyes i see the future in your eyes i see the stars oh darling come closer in your eyes i see the darkness i tried to walk with my eyes closed to find my way i saw you there lost in the crowd you walked through me and when i turned around your back was invisibile i don’t know why do i feel like i’ve been cut in a half tell me - are you real? in my eyes i see the darkness we can hold on to each other - hold on to each other! we can shout from the rooftops - hold on to each other! that we don’t know who we are - hold on to each other! we can hold on in the night - hold on to each other! we are strangers and i love you

children on the run younger than Peter Pan in this generation of daydreamers without dreams we are the wild things from our little rooms to the dark side of the moon of this wretched world we are the proud kings we are the wild things dance with me with your eyes closed dance this dance with your heart exposed we’re here for a moment then we’re gone so dance and sing - you are a wild thing! now it’s time to be ridiculous now it’s time to be in love we will never ever be so young again are you ready? dance with me with your eyes closed dance this dance with your heart exposed we’re here for a moment then we’re gone so dance and sing - we are the wild things TOGETHER WE CAN GET TO THE STARS

Run 03:45
something to protect you in the dark a magic spell to keep you when you sleep something to direct you when you dream and the ground seems to vanish run, darling run, my love sleeping in two in a bed for one finding you are beside when the dream fades from your eyes and you touch my hand your skin is warm - you rain on me, electric storm together now 1+1 = 1 run, darling run, my love run like you never have run

in the kingdom of the scraps in the nightly spell we climbed over the rusty gate and slipped into the garden of the haunted house now everything seems so real your silhouette is all i feel as we walk but we don’t touch the ground your face blue in a field of stars “do you think the ghost is real?” i laughed but with your mouth you said “yes” i am yours and you are mine for a moment out of time the grass was wet on your naked skin one day when we are some brilliant cosmic dust how can i caress your face then? how we’ll miss these little things down here! take my hand before we disappear

find your power little wolf listen to the voice within the voice of God that speaks within and saturate yourself with power you are hanging like a star alone and splendid like a star nothing here can touch the light your spirit flies higher than the sky into the forest dark and deep i wake up from the eternal sleep into the forest deep and dark i see million things that spark into the forest in my eyes elemental spirits fly electricity in the spine into the forest i... you can run run like a wolf your eyes can see through the night you’ve got magic in your hands your body is embodied magic find your power little wolf listen to the voice within “this reality is fake to be a dreamer you must be awake” into the forest dark and deep i wake up from the eternal sleep into the forest deep and dark i see million things that spark into the forest in my eyes elemental spirits fly electricity in the spine into the forest i... SHINE!

there was a man came to our town he wore a suit of red he memorized with secret eyes that he hid away in his head he had a scar upon his head where there used to be a crown but he sold his robes at the five-and-ten and he lived on the edge of town that fall he showed us a magic leaf that he could change to snow he bought it partly with his grief and partly with his soul and he scattered seeds in the alley way and he never seemed to rest and when we went to ask him why all he ever said was “yes” he made a swan from waving grass beside a crystal shore and a sunrise spun from broken glass and many things more but then his hands began to burn when he heard the news from the war “when we cannot find each other” he said “then we can't run away any more” next day with tears along his face he passed us on the hill no one thought to ask him to stay and he knows that we never will

every little child every child is lost every little dream in the night is lost every little fire every fire is lost the moon, the stars, the earth are lost every little boy every girl are gone all the magic spells in the air are lost the father, the son, the ghost are lost the mothers, the lovers, the motherfuckers too every little song ever sung is lost every little pray ever prayed is lost i tried to walk with my eyes closed to find the way but i was lost oooh my love we take a leap into the great unknown we spin into the great unknown every little child every child is lost every little dream in the night is lost every little boy every girl are gone every little flame in the night is gone every little thing in the world is lost every little world in the dark is lost there are shadows dancing in the outer space and the outer space in your eyes is lost oooh my love we swim into the great unknown we make love into the great unknown we fade into the great unknown we are into the great unknown

we were standing by the tracks waiting for her train she was my best friend and i was so in love all the time we were together talking about Baudelaire all the time i was ever dreaming about me and her i kissed Alice so we were standing by the tracks waiting for the train we were alone beside the people and the train did come and she approached me so plain she gently posed her petal lips upon mine i kissed Alice

i don’t wanna die before i’ve been to North Cape to see the sea where the sea has no shape i don’t wanna die before i’ve been to Shangri-la should it be in China or somewhere in Jamaica i don’t wanna die before i’ve learnt to sing the blues to read the stars and make my clothing and my shoes i don’t wanna die before i’ve even learnt to dance to use telepathy and fall in a state of trance i don’t wanna die young i don’t wanna die before i’ve settled down somewhere a house in the woods for my love and i to share and when the thunders burst and the sky is blue we’ll hold like inuits in a small igloo i don’t wanna die before i’ve let my burden down to face the unknown like a monk or like a clown i don’t wanna die before i’ve made my way through the mess in me to be one with you i don’t wanna die young iMAGiNATiON HAS SAVED MY LiFE!
