Evelyn said the fears that plague us
crystallise into firm foundations
for our new worlds, if we face them.

I’m afraid that I’m afraid of
all the wrong things, only made of
transient airflow, thin momentum:
if I don’t move, the world will cave in.

If I don’t move the world will cave in
If I don’t move the world will cave in

I’ve been so scared that soon you’ll hate me -
things have been tense between us lately.
Hurting myself, I call it bravery -
heading wherever your questions take me.

Heading wherever these questions take me:
I’ll be whoever my doubt can make me.

No good ideas without you,
no songs except about you,
but love can’t change my mind -
though grown so old, no longer blind.
Back when I thought of earning
the bright light in you burning
I never thought I’d find
that you’d break other hearts than mine.
