around, my love

around
and around

despite myself
I return
one more time
I go

around
and around

I know
I think I know
what it means
to burn

go around

and I try so hard
to keep
a little distance

and around

but that heat
it makes me feel

this is what
I’m looking for

around around
around I go again

closer
I move away

always
a little closer

and around

ah well
if it is my fate

if I must crash
and burn away
well
so I will

and so I will

go around
I come
a little closer

who can
in the very end of ends
who can
resist his death
resist his calling
in life

one time
one last time
around

around you
my love
