Turned To You

I turned to you and said, “What life are we on?”
I turned to you and the sun poured down, I turned to you
I turned to you and we slipped out of time, I turned to you and the boats went by
I turned to you

I think we were young then, I think it was May
I know I drank you in every time you looked away
You better run from me my words are fire, you better run from me my words are fire

You better run straight at me til I disappear

This time around what a lovely form
This time around we’re a man and a woman, this time around
You’ve been my mother and my brother, my child and my friend
But this is the life we might get to transcend

Straight at me you better run …

If you are her, and I am her, then we are just the same
It takes all this light and all this heat
To burn the rest away

You better run …

(Song inspired by the line “You had better run from me my words are fire.”
from “Wooden Cages” – Rumi: The Book of Love translated by Coleman Barks)
