phantom treasure lyrics – discover america

why does your shape attract my eye?
is it the chemistry of our young bodies prodding us in such hot pursuit of a lie?
we chase a quickly fading phantom.
treasure baby!
if that is so, then one day it shall go.
disappearing as a layer of week-old melting snow.
this human heart is never clear.
it’s half filled up with wonder, and the other half with fear.
