lyrics

There She Stood

There she stood, the colour of this song I once knew,
but I couldn’t sing it to you, with the skill that she crooned it.
Hair like music - a chorus of curls, with endings so smooth,
and she moved with a certain truth.
Like each step was viewed beforehand,
marked and planned, the cars part as she plants a foot
but no one else looks, like only I notice her slide to the beat of street machinery.

She punctuates the rhythmic phrases,
each stride creating patterns of mechanical mayhem -
a city-scape orchestrated with the traffic as her own personal backing band.
Each movement conducted telepathically,
so what seemed like random scenes, are now enacted with harmony.
Seems the whole city knows her song, and only exists to play along.

She punctuates the rhythmic phrases of a city orchestrated
She dances through the breaks and jams with the traffic as her backing band

And she goes...

And I’m hooked by that chorus, exuded sweet from pores -
I’m falling for the beat of her feet on floor.
And I’m torn, between stopping traffic just to see her pause, or
trying to score it down, notate the route she takes,
each placement she makes with toes on pavement all slow and graceful;
but steady, un-phased by the eddies and flows,
of pedestrian or motorist. She just steps in focus.
Well-versed at traversing this ocean of alloy-framed hearses,
turning each screaming behemoth, into ice-cream melodic versions.
Till the tarmac reverberates and shakes in time to each heart beat -
I can’t breath unless it’s syncopated, and inhale late on fourth.

She punctuates the rhythmic phrases of a city orchestrated
She dances through the breaks and jams with the traffic as her backing band

And she goes...
And there she stood coordinating all the cityscapes
And there she stood in orchestrated grace

I’m falling for the beat of her feet
But no one else looks, like only I see
Seems the whole city knows her song
But only exists to play along
And there she stood coordinating all the cityscapes
And there she stood in orchestrated grace
