Daring

Location

I stole a piece of the sun’s heart

And kept her rays for you

I called them my Sunshine

My always greatest treasure

 

But even treasures wilt

Like flowers on a summer day

Like my dreams that you took away

I called them my own

Oh, but you took them away

 

I stole a piece of the moon’s crown

And cupped his seas in my hand

I called them my Current

My always troublesome admirer

 

But even admirers grow bored

Like children on a school day

Like my thoughts that you locked away

I called them my own

Oh, but you locked them away

 

Why does it hurt to run away?

You never knew anything else

And yet I ran away

You took the king’s crown

And drank from the queen’s cup

But what did you learn from me?

 

I ran away to the edges of the woods

And hid in their quiet breeze

I called her my Haven

My always true lover

 

But even lovers die

Like prisoners on the plank

Like when you made everything blank

I called her my own

But you took her away too

 

I danced my way to the clouds

And answered their thunder

I called him my Song

My always breathing brother

 

But even brothers leave

Like innocents on the plank

Like when you made everything blank

I called him my own

But you took him away too

 

Why does it hurt to run away?

You never knew anything else

And yet I ran away

You took the king’s crown

And drank from the queen’s cup

But what did you learn from me?

 

These thousand stolen dreams

Haunt me like a thousand stolen thoughts

But you never cared

Oh, you don’t care

I showed you how to be new

But you never cared

Oh, you don’t care

 

Why does it hurt to run away?

You never knew anything else

And yet I ran away

You took the king’s crown

And drank from the queen’s cup

But what did you learn from me?

 

Oh child don’t you know

My love is deeper than all these seas

My dreams are harbored just for you

And the sun’s rays are all for you

The daring moon’s crown

It’s all for you

But what did you learn from me?
