Between Words

from by Shagg



When I look to the sky, it
Opens up and falls down

No more beautiful stars singing
Out in harmony

The moon and all its light, bathes
My mind when I chew my herbs

Back down on earth, I see all the tragedy
In common moments,

That precious space
Between words

Then I saw a comet that was so bright and

My eye dropped a tear into a cup that was
Already full

That precious moment
Between words

Now the light goes down, I see my eyes open to
The evening sky

The moon it keeps on smiling, but sometimes it
Looks like a frown

Now I'm back on earth, I spend all my time
On my back

Then I sing a song and I start to cry

That precious moment
Between words
