Don’t play with fire if you’re too cold
for everything I’ve lost and found again
everything I lost and learned to live without
will you love the parts of me that I find hard to love?
I want you to be mesmerized by my strength,
dazzled by my mind,
hypnotized by my movement
I want to live all that I can
losing a few things
The ones who worship the sun, moon and stars,
name their children after trees,
who’ve been conquered and been conquerors,
who sang their way to freedom.
No matter how gray it is on Earth
above the clouds
it is always blue
