Look at us now
Look at us now
We can't face the stars
And let the twinkle into our hearts
We don't sing with the birds
Or try to flap our wings
We don't run with the wind
Or let the breeze touch our skin
We don't hold our hands
When our hearts begin to beat
We don't whisper a tune
To the daisies;
Or at noon
Try to catch our shadows

Look at us now.
We stopped to live
And stopped to give
The mountains are silent
They wonder what happened
The valleys are sombre
No one paints
their ledges;
The moon wore red
But no one noticed
No one asked
For a date
Or a photo
She wanted a canvas
Look at us now
It's not just us
