Maggie Rogers – By Morning

Maggie Rogers – By Morning

The forest is dark
and I’m wide awake
not sleeping

The road to my heart
is stark
but I’m alive

Which way would you run
If you were looking
through my glass eyes?

Or would your clean skin
leave you
paralyzed?

And baby
I was born
to daylight

With twilight
tangled in
the sky

And as I
escape
and take flight

I am running free
of all those
tangled wires

And I’ll be home
by morning.
And the morning light
will warm
my tired bones
I’ll run
through the trees
and through the forest
and in morning,
by morning
I’ll be home.
