​High

This song is by Rainbirds and appears on the album Making Memory (1996).

Look at these
Dry leaves
And crumbling blossoms
Old beat books
Stripped of the cover
I feel delighted
Suddenly singing
With a voice
That is coming
From out of the blue
Dark points in time
Follow after
Shy not shallow
High not hollow
A slightly off-beat
Pounding heart

Because it's
All over
I need not to take cover
Nothing can break besides my soul - yeah
I got it under control - yeah

Miles of tape in
Cardboard boxes
Millions of pages on
Gains and losses
I feel spooky
Suddenly speaking
With a voice
That is coming
From behind the shelf
Locked up inside is
My happier self
Shy not shallow
High not hollow
A slightly off-beat
Pounding heart

Because it's
All over
I need not to take cover
Nothing can break besides my soul - yeah
I got it under control - yeah

Bundled dreams and
Dusty gems
Imploring notes
That strangers send:
Please me deeper
Love me sweeter
Hug me harder
Never let me go - I am
Shy not shallow
High not hollow
Got a slightly off-beat
Pounding heart

Because it's
All over
I need not to take cover
Nothing can break besides my soul - yeah
I got it under control - yeah
