i'm hitting my legs and pounding my chest
but my eyes just want to rest.
Slapping and clapping to keep me awake,
the lids of my eyes half- closed to the day.
Now i'm on a round-the-clock watch
to keep you in sight...
keep you from flying.
'Cause i blink and you're gone.
Your soul's so bright it rivals the sun.
i blink and you're gone.
Will i find the strength to carry on?
You're like a thief, so taken with the night
you steal the breath from inside me
and i'm the victim of your flight
you always deny me...
i can't go on, this world's so cruel
if the men don't get ya then the women will.
