There’s a fire burning out in your city
I can see the smoke but not the flames
Throwing sparks in whole new places
And there’s something different
When you say my,
you say my name

There’s a boat moving on down the river,
The lights are on but there’s no-one aboard
Nothing you say ever what it seems
And yet nothing you say ever seems untoward
seems unto, seems unto, seems unto, seems un-

Toward the nectar
drawn in by your colours
as I move a little closer
I see everything looks duller
I’m far too close for comfort now,
I let your words disarm me
I thought I’d found my answer but it was only Origami

There’s a bird flying out overhead,
She’s caught your gaze, torn a hole in your skies,
A universe glaring that you’ve never seen,
And everything’s different before your wide eyes..
before your wide -

Eyes fixated
I can barely stand to face this
What I see is just a mirror now
I had thought was an oasis
I’ve been collecting armour
For next time you come to charm me
You said you’d bring me flowers
But they were only Origami

I’m walking the footbridge looking out at the night
Your boats pulling up as if I might get in
I’ve learn not to notice, I know you won’t join me
Just let me jump over even though I cannot -

Swim until you find me
On an island in the ocean
Drag yourself to the centre
Just to declare your devotion
To your home that you have run from
As you wrap your arms around me..
You gave me your heart
But it was only.... Origami.
