Sleepwalk

So many people sleepwalk through life

You are not one

[who?]

When I see your eyes

Sparkling

[don’t look at me that way]

I see the universe

[it’s complicated]

I barely know you

But I know that you feel it

Too

[there’s room outside the lines to play]

[it’s really complicated, give me time]

Creation’s maelstrom isn’t a threat

But a playground for the willing

For those whose eyes remember

That souls are born in daydreams

[I see your eyes sparkling]

[I like it when you look at me that way]
