  • In an open room that echoes well this is where I can tell you
    This is where I meet my muse and it feeds me.
    This is how I buy the sun and it feeds me.
    This is why I burn this candle I light it so that I can handle this.
    You're so still
    You're so safe
    Appear severe
    You are so nonchalant.
    I'm so still
    I'm so safe
    Appear severe
    I am not.
    This is where I meet my muse and it feeds me.
    This is how I buy the sun, and it feeds me.
    I told David I won't die, and this is how I watch the sky,
    That is why I burn this candle, I light it so that I can handle this.
    You're so still,
    You save face.
    Try to erase all you feel inside.
    Stand still,
    I save face,
    I misplace all the feelings I can't hide.
    Of all the rooms I've loved before it's you I love inside this room
    They test me can I train my evil eye to see like they do -
    Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes.
    Of all the rooms I've loved before,
    It's you I love.
    This is how I meet my muse. Writer/s: LISA A. LOEB
