I’m hoping for another moment
Under the clouds of ember
The clouds of ember
Can we lay awake
Can we lay awake
Can we lay forever
While we’re here together
Under the clouds of ember
Let’s live for more
Hand in hand, shoulder to chin
Beneath the clouds of ember
Dreaming of walking through red woods
And climbing trees, climbing together

We’re entangled in countless arms
Hidden with comfort in the branches
Holding bouquets of leaves
The giant trees whisper to the breeze
Intrigued by the sky water colored in red
Pure thoughts and feelings extend from our shoelaces to our heads
Can we lay awake
Can we lay awake
Can we lay here forever
It’s all I know it’s all we know that’s perfect, Thoreau

You stand beside, got me rest assured
Always dig deep, pick inside intellect
The brightest of minds provoking splendid ideas
Of happy tears, pushing away the saddest fears
Speaking words that all seem to fit and hold like the stones
Of a cleverly crafted pier
They flow forever and rhyme the better
You climb on nimble thoughts
Knit my feelings like a sweater

You sleep in trees, you sleep in trees
Can I lay next to you on this branch that keeps you safe
Or will I have to wait until its written with fate

I swim next to sharks circling surfaced fins
Exploring your wildest needs
I’m walking on pine needles like pins
Dreaming of that tree and you

You sleep in trees, you sleep in trees
Can I share a branch next to you
In your tree beneath the ember clouds

I’ll wait in an empty queue
Standing still with patience in a place where no one knows
Inexistent to the mundane wom-and-men
I’m in way over my head
In a pile of leaves
More than a stones throw
Close to where the wild winds blow
Ill stand there for days
With vultures circling above shoulder length locks
The blocks have been rolled then thrown
Have gotten stacked all on their own
It’s been built to last
It’s been built to last
We climb in trees in our dreams
Under the clouds of ember

You sleep in trees, you sleep in trees
Can I share a branch next to you
In your tree beneath the ember clouds
Can we lay awake
Can we lay awake
Can we lay here forever
In the tree under the clouds of ember
Under the clouds of ember
