Holding On

The day stabbed my eyes through the blinds
A subtle omen to a discerning mind
Outside lightly frosted life
The dream had run away with me and left a part of you behind

The sky found weeping irresistible
And almost mockingly it fires at my window
It's a moonless night
Easy come easy go
It's too dark to close my eyes

Holding on to a breath in mid-air
I know what you want
But don't know how to take you there
Holding on to a breath of mid-air
I'll never be brave enough to keep you there

Pardon this polished approach
Tired and over-rehearsed
I am overcompensating for a mind gone slow
Time moves quick and unkind
I took mine easy though
The dream had run away with me and left a part of you behind
