Grounded five a.m., the night life is comforting,
But gravity is holding you
Once settled into sleep
You have watched
On repeat the story of your life
Across the ceiling
And in review

You said the air was singing
It's calling you, you don't believe
These things you've never seen.

Good morning, how are you?
The weather's fine
The sky is blue
