Axis of I

VERSE 1

 

The world it turns on my fingertips

An axis of I

Every so often I look at this goddess of my world

And see myself for the fool that I am

 

The sun it shines so strong

No place it cannot find

But instinct forbids us to gaze too hard

Even though I’m grown, forever I heed

What once I was warned

 

CHORUS

 

Look away, look away

Dear child, from who you are

Keep going, keep moving on this train of life

Do not stop to stare at this precious light

Close your eyes

Do not grasp to hold what you fear to lose

These rays that shine they will blind

These rays that shine they will blind

 

VERSE 2

 

You and I react, explode into flashes

Our spirits in flames, like the sun

But every so often you cast me in shadow

Like a moon or a star passing by

 

For seconds, you eclipse my soul

In the harmony of light layering light

In beauty and wonder and nothing to fear

Giving the illusion it’s safe to gaze,

Into my being ablaze

CHORUS

 

Look away, look away

Dear child, from who you are

Keep growing, keep going on this train of life

Do not stop to stare at this precious light

Close your eyes

And do not grasp to hold what you fear to lose

These rays that shine they will blind

These rays that shine they will -

 

 

BRIDGE

 

Blind me there’s no one inside to guide me,

My compass just lines in the sand

Mama oh Mama, I’m so afraid to win

So busy running from who I am not

Who is there left for me to become?

 

 

CHORUS

 

Look away, look away

Dear child, from who you are

Keep going, keep moving on this train of life

Do not stop to stare at this precious light

Close your eyes

And do not grasp to hold what you fear to lose

These rays that shine they will blind

These rays that shine they will blind

 

The world it turns on my fingertips…
