Flashback

I had a flashback once
It tipped the Richter scale
Almost right at nine
It took control of me

Before I knew the war was on 
You didn't see my mind
You only heard my fist
Trying to be kind

Help me find my soul
Hylda wants my heart
To hang it on the wall
Help me get it back

I had a flashback once
It took me by surprise
Next thing you were smiling
A sparkle in your eye

Next thing we were dancing
Kissing and romancing
Next thing we were falling
Falling to the sky

Now I'm falling straight into
A streaming fire of blue
Fountain for a flood of passion
Falling hard for you

Was I falling for them
Or falling down into them
Was I falling helplessly
Into a sky of blue

We'll never know
I never dreamed that part
I never dreamed the part about 
Your mother and your dad

Next thing we were falling
Falling in and out
You saved me, I was drowning
Shadow of a doubt

Don't forget to breathe
Don't bet on thirteen
Never let it go
Listen to your dream

Lay it on the line
A diamond or a spade
Never let your color
Show another shade

Never let your sorrow
Over take your heart
Dedicate your legend
Rising to the part

Help me get it half way there
And get it half way square
That or get it back to here
And carry on from there

Listen to your mother
Try to find your brother
Try to find your sister
Your children one another

Surpass until they're grown
Children of their own
Character in each
Friendliness to teach

Exceeding expectation
Defeating all demand
Outshine every means of light
A kind and gentle hand
