life is strange

life is strange
and life is wonderful
and it doesn’t go
any way you thought it would

slow the rules go
stopping to say hello
then bustle and bump
and rush to pass by

because black is white
and the sun can turn blue
the oceans turn lemon
as i swim deep with you

for if the sky should fall
come crashing to earth
dust clouds cough, settle, and linger
but it’s food for the singer

riddles, like middles,
are ticklish to touch
so chose your words wisely
preferring to blush

answers come like a
summer shower thunder
when you feel it in your veins
a poet a prophet a sinner a saint
all sit playing cards inside the pearly gate

because black is white
and the sun can turn blue
the oceans turn lemon
as i swim deep with you
