Dont go

Don't go
Stay.
Don't go
Stay.
I said no
But I mean, I don't know.

The black moon is drowning over the opal sea.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.

Hold my hand,
Please.
Hold my hand,
Please.
I said I'm not ready,
But I mean, I don't know.

The red sun is exploding in a plum blue sky.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.


Sleep with me,
Tonight.
Sleep with me,
Tonight.
I said I'm not sure,
But I mean, I don't know.

The Lightening in my soul is burning, burning burning.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.

    Lotsa emotion in this one... and vivid imagery. I was familiar with the 'no...I don't know' scenario when I was in my teens. It's well articulated here. Keith
