Ten Mile Stilts

Imagine you're a girl on ten mile stilts You travel round the world, taking it all in You'll never touch the ground Is it a blessing or a curse And if you're too high to be found Are you lost or just rehearsed Got a heart that opens clear in this cool September dark It rests on treetop leaves And bursts its little sparks And sometimes it sings its songs And it lets its secrets out Except for one that sears inside That it cannot live without But if I tell you will you take it Will you shine it up to me Can you be strong to let me go on And set this freedom free The stars are out tonight Up here they're ripe to hold But I have learned what comes to those who get too close I'm no Icarus in flight And I'm old enough to know That love is patient, but still unyielding If you leave it long enough it lets you go But if I tell you wil you take it Will you shine it up to me Can you be strong to let me go on And set this freedom free
