Dandylou

She closes her eyes.
She makes a wish and she sighs.
(Seeds go everywhere.)

Dear Patrick (Henry)

I have no cannon,
No charge to fire.
I hold a sparkler
And whisper rebellion.
But I whisper-speak
My heresy with
Laughing abandon.
Even though
I have no cannon,
No charge to fire.
I hold a sparkler
And dream my liberties.
And I plan my fate
I plan my future
In firework haze.
I have no cannon,
No charge to fire.
I hold a sparkler
And whisper rebellion.
And I whisper-speak
My heresy in
Laughing abandon.

The Gospel Truth

I want to cry (out loud and everything).
There’s a howl in my heart (and I want to be free).
And I want to be.
And I want to be.
And I want to be.

I want to run (wild arms and everything).
There’s a leap in my soul (and I want to be free).
And I want to be.
And I want to be.
And I want to be.

I want to fly (do dives and everything).
There’s a song in my mind (and I want to be free).
And I want to be.
And I want to be.
And I want to be.

Dear Lord…
(I’d like to be a star if I could be anything.)
(Dust and fire and clouds and everything.)
(I’d be a giant. I’d be a galaxy.)
(If I could be anything.)
