Speak Your Mind Slam- Moonlight Escape


When the sun goes down, and the moon rises high,

When the fire flies glow under a deep starry night,

Life surges through my soul,

Here I am playing another role to keep people from getting hurt,

Just waiting to burst.

Sky above and Earth below,

Looking up I’ve always known,

Home is where the lights are low.

Here I am waiting take the blow, 

Let me escape again into the light,

Lights down low for a deep starry night,

Fills me with hope it will be alright.

Standing there under the moon,

I know I can make my dreams come true,

As long as I escape under the moon.
