Commentary
Inspired by a conversation with Simmi.

I'm scared of what you'll think of me.

You may find I'm not the person

that you hoped I was.

Lurking behind these eyes is pain

- but is that so unfamiliar to you?

There may be more about each other

that we will recognise if you will stay.


Give me your ears again.

Give me your eyes again.

I do believe that you won't walk away.

I do believe that you won't walk away.

Your eyes are mirrors to my soul

and yes I hear the echoes of the fear

that make me want to run

but life is not a rehearsal

& we cannot spend our lives running away.

I recognise you and I'll try

to hear your voice if you will let me stay.


I'll give you my ears again.

I'll give you my eyes again.

Don't be afraid.  I won't walk away.

Don't be afraid.  I wont walk away.

Open up those petals, flower.

Dance as you drink in the sun.

Now spread those wings & fly, young seagull.

Touch the sky above the clouds.
