The Rooftop


Upon the rooftop reaching for the stars
Looking up you see stars, Venus and Mars
Wishing for some magic and discover
You’re holding feelings under cover

You can’t hide forever magic will show
Your feet over the world are still shadows
Running, walking or creeping with all fours
Going nowhere you’re stuck like before

Until you accept that magic won’t work
Trying the last one thing of you going berserk
You can’t run for feelings under cover
Seeing it all out you’re going to suffer
