Pfeil TIME TRAVELLING (Erica Buettner)

Crying won't get you a dime,
but you won't get a dime without crying
life's greatest balancing act
is to sell fewer tears than you're buying

At the fountains of sorrow,
you don't make a wish,
everyone learns how to swim like a fish
You save all your pennies for a luckier tide
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride

But we will stay afloat
drop our hearts like anchors and rock like the boat
My love was born with gills
A cavernous space that creates, restores, and refills

In the city the walls learn to talk,
screaming slogans in neon and chalk,
people cast their beliefs like a stone
that betrays but won't leave you alone

And the cars all fly past
in a hot, metal flash,
it's the speed at which moments
belong to the past
The flood that keeps coming
and alarms that won't ring
are the reasons that I started time travelling

I am with you in heart and in mind
I am with you in and out of time
We are rising and rolling like waves
through the dust and the grind and the grime

You told me that time functions just like a coil
and bodies are roots if they just pierce the soil
so let us lie down in the soft, fertile ground
and stare up the center of time going round

We will stay afloat
drop our hearts like anchors and rock,
rock like the boat
My love was born with gills,
a cavernous space that creates, restores, and refills
