ALEXANDRIA DANCE.

GRIMES & HRYBOWICZ ©

I lie, hearing sounds in the night.

I’m crying.

I heard a shot.

It was my heart breaking.

The white walls cracking surround me.

I feel the heat on my skin-

my body is aching for you. 

Alexandria dance.

Alexandria dance for me.  

I see the stars hanging heavy in the sky

Far away, an animal breathing, a child’s cry.

The night sky is silent above me.

I feel the heat on my skin and my body is aching for you.

Alexandria dance,

Alexandria dance for me.

Speak to me inside my head,

 I open my eyes you are not here.

Are they voices I hear outside my Window?

I feel the heat on my skin and my body is aching for you.

Alexandria dance.

Alexandria dance for me.
