Fly (28 September 1998) 1998 by Kristi Martel

you wanted me
you came to me
you told me
that you're crazy
you held me
and you cried

I wanted you
I heard you
I held you
I knew you
I believed you
I believe

you nourish your fear
you plant your feet
you know this street
you scale this wall
just to let yourself fall

you build those walls
I understand them
I see you've planned them
I see you reach
and I see you fly

but all the while
you say it's me, it's me
it's me done this wrong

but I've been loving you, child
I know where you are
I've been there before

I see you flailing
I see you scaling
the wall just
to let yourself fall
and call it flying


you put your trouble in
where I begin
you wanted love
you found love
and you work it out
that love here be denied

and you watch me
lovingly
and critically
and painfully
you tell me
that you know how to fix me

your flight is in fear
you plant your feet
you know this street
you scale this wall
just to let yourself fall

you frame me beautifully
you blame me intuitively
you take me with you
just to tell me
you don't think I can fly

but I've been flying
I have been flying
I have been flying
in love with you

I have been searching
I have been knowing
and all I've been seeing
is love and
love and
love and
love
