a whiter shade of pale

before the moon and after dinner i took you somewhere. it was nothing i could explain and you may not have noticed. but i was with you between lights and thoughts and doubt. i have set myself ablaze so the warmth may reach you and guide you to where i am. you are the proof of a good idea and i circumnavigate your walls for a way in. you let me come up sometimes or maybe i just force my way in. i can never be sure. driving with you, so fast, across air and water and through mountains, my heart makes sounds that make my body beat. and before i saw you i think i knew.
