Wake up, it says. This time of year makes me want to grow up.
Makes me want to grow tall so that its easy
To climb up the first, hardest parts of trees.
The hardest parts of trees
Sticky hands and black feet from dirt, and my hair
is always clean cause I'm swimming.
I feel the most beautiful when it's hot.
Dark nights of the deep music that runs through your skin.
It's like water, never solid.
And it wants to take you away.
To the ocean or the sea,
to the ocean or the sea.
Were you in the garden yet today?
Nights like these where my feet have heavy grass
stains from stomping to beats are the ones
I dream about when I'm holed up inside
When I'm holed up inside.
Dark nights of the deep.
