music and lyrics by Barbie Almalbis

would you be interested in dancing with me? and maybe tell me all your dreams talk to me like you would in your sleep don't censor anything cause i wanna hear everything there's no innocence left to spoil you can swear she's not a little boy we'll fly tonight so far away where they will never find us use your wings and i will run fast cause that's what i do when i'm not afraid we've got it made up in our heads we don't have to wait for anyone or anything go anywhere we desire so close your eyes become blind from the world listen instead to the girl she's tell you why she chose to fly and you're left behind just like me alone and free we can smile when we've filled the void and treated the burn but until then i believe we're gonna have to learn to discard any disguise we're using yes it's hard and it's never amusing so close your eyes...
