In the heat of Asia


We just wanted to play around
all day and night
content and not seeking anything more

Damp nights in Asia
just walking the quiet night streets
owning
world clasped in hands
careless, just skidding off fun

What every aspiring rock star wanted in late nights
after the wee hours of an ending party
some things to talk about
some pains to share
some loves to give and take
to make

Swimming the sea in the depths of his eyes
the whirlpool flies high
the night goes backwards
and we’re semi young and looking again
in the crux of age-old aspirations and reality checks
at the seams of innocence

In the depths of your eyes
reflections of long-ago childhood
people who just wanted to have fun
but died too fast
no clarity on future

Just this pivotal moment
In-between stage
in your eyes
in the heat of Asia

Played by music
