I Am the Air

from Welcome to Us 2 by Allison Crowe



I Am the Air

Composed by Allison Crowe

I am the air I breathe I am the fire. I am the door you left open, I am desire. And I hope, and I hope this gets through to you. And I know, and I know, that it won’t.

I am the time that passes without a sound, I am the wind that knocks all your motion down. And I know and I see, this got through to you.

And I pray, though I say I don’t pray that you hear me now. And I say though I can’t say that you will believe me. So I scream, and I scream until I’m worn. And I tear up, and I tear until I’m torn.

I sleep and I sleep so I can dream this up. I keep and I keep the shadows in my head. And I fight and I fight away this dread. I will light I will light this fire until I’m dead.

You are the air I breathe, you are the fire. You are the door I left open, you are desire. And you hope, and you hope that this gets through to me. You don’t know, you don’t know it never will.
