all unbound
you find it embarrassing
when the winds have blown you
cinders and tumbleweed
from the lost and found
of places that love denied
pound for pound

town to town
you move without memory
when the birds have flown
there are things you won't throw away
so you gather round
these pirates and castaways
a paradise

Que seras-tu, perle éphémère ?
À l'aurore, vierge chimère,
Je serai nuage d'azur.

and the sun goes down

Que seras-tu, larme tremblante ?
À la première aube troublante,
Je m'envolerai rêve d'or.

and the sun goes down

and you cried in the marshes
and you cried in the fields
and you cried for your roses
and you know how it feels
to be tied to a promise
that you can't hope to keep
and it burns out your daylight
and it darkens your sleep

and the sun goes down

so you've gone to ground
with your jasmine and cedarwood
but the wind still calls you
on a bus ride to anomie
and i'm still here
