The sky looks almost blue
Underneath these clouds it's night
Up again, it's too late to sleep
So again I've been up all week
Waiting for the streetlights

At least there's windows over here
I'm alone but I'm not far
A puzzle that's all put together
I'm loose but I'm still tethered
Illuminated by this star

There's a wave that pushes and pulls
A force that gives and takes
See the door, shut it and lock it
See the wall with hands in my pockets
The current trembles and shakes

Breathe of fresh air whenever
I see the light just out of reach
I'd write a book if I could read
I'd tell a story if I believed
Like a cold kiss upon your cheek

I see vibrations being sent
Tonight feels just a little alive
Would you pick up the phone if I rang
Would you give me your hand if I sang
I know I have to visualize

Crumpled up papers in the corner
Scattered around my thoughts
I've got time to figure it out
I've got things to write about
Before I lose my shot
Can't sleep. Just waiting for the streetlights to come on

Great stanza ^

I also love the rhyming scheme but it seemingly falters here and there, a bit of a tidy up and this could be really something. For now, its fantastic, good work.

Thanks for giving this some thought. For better or worse, I felt the scheme being stretched in places. I'd like to get around to tightening it up soon.
