sick to my heart lyrics – desa

sleeping tight.
contented sugarplums danced.
not a care in the world.
the contract shone with permanence.
the moment had arrived.
somehow i had survived the questions.
a new road was opening.
it was my chance to sing at long last.
the academic blockade was melting.
when along came a quiet truth with fire for my bed: 911.
sirens awoke my neighbors.
emt’s confused, asked me where i was bleeding.
but it was so dark.
waking up in the middle of a freezing night,
i wondered if i’d ever see the sun again.
wind whistling warnings on my frosty window.
summer where’d you go?
i dig for answers under snow.
the moment had arrived.
somehow i had survived the answers.
a new road is opening.
what will tomorrow bring?
you never know.
finally, the sun came through my window.
i got up slow and plugged in my guitar.
