phoenix lyrics – tear garden

hit rewind
you sit surrounded
by a frame
your laugh infectious
hair in flames
your star was lonely
but it lives
don’t have the time for tears

a step beyond
deep in the corner
of my eye
i swear i saw
a curtain rise
i can’t be certain
i could be seeing
what i want to see

just who guides these hands
when they’re shaking with frustration
when scr*ping in the sand
who provides the inspiration
who whispers from outside
when all seems desperation

“seize the future…”
