lyrics

Toss & Turn

My dreams have been ransacked
But the thieves left confused and empty-handed
The sweet fragrance of opportunity
And the pungency of doubts
Nesting in my mind
Say what you will but you’ll never understand

The toss and turn of a thousand fitful nights
The toss and turn of a thousand fitful nights

There’s no christen the bow beginning
There’s no storybook ending

The ceaseless nagging
Of a heart flapping wildly with desire
An echo from my childhood-
A scolding voice that warnsI might get hurt
I turned a deaf ear and I never recognized

The fluttering of angel wings at hand
The fluttering wings of guardian angels.

There’s no christen the bow beginning
There’s no storybook ending

You wake up, shake up my heart
You wake up break up my heart
You wake up, shake up my heart
You wake up smash up my heart
