Niebla says...


Don’t hide from me;
there’s nothing to be afraid of
Don’t turn away;
this is what dreams are made of
As time escapes;
days blurring into nights
You bide the sun goodbye
and slip away, out of sight


All those things were no more
than just stepping stones
A sensation that lay dormant there,
deep within her bones
Something tells her that home
is oh so far away
Wondering if those stones will
support her another day


Go slowly now;
watch your veins as they tremble
Your eyes are crevices;
deep and endless oceans
See what I can do;
I can turn it clear as morning dew
Soon you’ll understand;
you’ll understand where I’m leading you


Now that she knows that
They carry on forever
Anything further is
just an illusion in the mist
Now she feels
How sweet it is to be drowning
Everything disconnected,
the world as it really is

It's not a great recording, but just to give you an idea of what it sounds like with the music.

Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here.
