Listening For The Signal

Track 10 from the album Letters to Cyril Connolly.

Dripping from my fingertips
Glistening upon my lips
Endlessly delicious sips
Guiding me to somewhere close
Happily led by the nose
Feel the grass between my toes
Can I hear the secret
Signs that you're creating
Listening for the signal
Every day I'm waiting
Blinking in a blinding glare
Breathing someone else's air
See the world through orange hair
Following the floating specks
Using words no one expects
Hopeless crying nervous wrecks
