Glass

  • Went over the sea
    What did I find?
    A thousand crystal towers
    A hundred emerald cities
    And the hand of the watchman
    In the night sky
    Points to my beloved
    A knight in crystal armor

    And I tried to hold him
    I tried for the creed
    I'll make a suit of colors
    To stop the blinding mirrors
    Sew a cape of red and gold
    Stifle up the being
    With the perfect armor
    With a perfect dream

    To be made of glass
    When two suns are shining
    The battle becomes blinding
    To be made of glass
    But we ride tonight, tonight, tonight, we ride

    And with two suns spinning
    At two different speeds
    Was born a hot, white diamond
    Burning through the rainbow
    Flames fell into orbit
    To hold eternally
    Two heavenly spirits
    That just wouldn't seem

    To be made of glass
    When two suns are shining
    The battle becomes blinding
    To be made of glass
    But we ride tonight, tonight, tonight, we ride

    Hey, oh
    Hey oh oh oh
    Hey, oh
    Hey oh oh oh
    Hey, oh
    Hey oh oh ohWriter/s: NATASHA KHAN
