Precariously Lyrics (by Jess Hill)

Put me precariously in a situation I can't escape
Like a rose pressed between the page
Hard cover, make it holy, on a shelf just out of reach
Near a window that overlooks the sea
Clouds full of secrets dropping hints through the air
Loosening the sky's tight grip on despair
Leave me, where the blues imitate the gray
With a furrowed brow, arms outstretched
I'll push myself near to the edge
And see if you can't get to me

Oh, you've been a long time coming
I've been a long time gone

Nightshade, dandelion, a bittersweet vine but still I'm trying
The part that blossoms, will only poison you
They open up the heavens, they open up the gates
Do we open up our eyes, or is it just too late?
Is love gone from this place?

Put me precariously in a situation I can't escape
Like a rose pressed between the page
