lyrics

Sparks fly
Every time I
Identify a species
I have hitherto never
Seen in the field
Seen in the feather
Sparkbird
Destiny
Drew us together
Every smile line on my face
Can be retraced
Down to the split second
Down to the split place

Is it magical thinking
Or is it magical realism
Or is it neither
Here nor there?
Every time I check my wrist
It's another brand new freckle
Past another brand new hair
I'm growing up, up, up
Against my will, will
Will you finally resurrect
The time I've killed?
Will you finally resurrect
The time I've killed, killed, killed?

Sparks fly
Every time I
Visit this park
I envision
The phantom
Of a giddy little cartoon me
Jittering
On the electrifying cusp
Of discovery
Before and after the storm
All I wanted was
To be seen
And to see

Some signs of a world still turning, turning, turning
Some signs of a world still forming, forming, forming
Rebirth of a dream still burning, burning, burning

Is it magical thinking
Or is it magical realism
Or is it neither
Here nor there?
Every time I check my wrist
It's another brand new freckle
Past another brand new hair
I'm growing up, up, up
Against my will, will
Will you finally resurrect
The time I've killed?
Will you finally resurrect
The time I've killed, killed, killed?
