princess and the pea

“Upward, but not
northward.”

-Edwin Abbot, Flatland

something’s not right
princess and the pea
it keeps me up nights
something’s bothering me

please turn off the lights
please close your eyes
find me with your hands
we’ll climb the night sky

i don’t care if it’s real
’cause i got to love you
but sometimes it feels
nothing human is true

something’s not right
it’s not what it seems
this life in the light
is too pretty to be

 the weight of each day
waking up to the dread
all my awful mistakes
i’m alone in my head

in this beautiful world
i only want to be kind
you can lean on me girl
i’m not losing my mind

but something’s not right
princess and the pea
it keeps me up nights
something’s staring at me

please turn off the lights
please close your eyes
find me with your hands
we’ll climb the night sky.
