  • I'm saved
    You pull my fingers off the deck
    You pluck me wriggling from the rain

    I'm saved
    You cast me up into the wind
    You shove my body from the skin

    I'm saved
    The fire looking at the warmth
    You drag me burning 'cross a court

    I'm ashamed
    Lying fallen on some step
    Clutching at the empty air

    I'm awake
    I see you walk into the room
    You do the thing I couldn't do

    I'm afraid
    Am I burning for prints on the floor?
    The things I don't need anymore

    I'm awake
    I wait
    I wait Publisher: DOMINO PUBLISHING COMPANY
