Shipwreck

You're an actor and you've won over this crowd
You're a painter and your colours are so loud
You're a breath mark, you let the silences slip in
I'm a shipwreck, no one knows where I've been

You're a poet searching for that perfect rhyme
You're on the roof top just waiting for that sign
You're a dirt road leading me to the unknown
I'm the student just waiting to be shown

You're lightning and you light up every room
As we anticipate the storm that's coming soon
You're the daybreak warming everything in sight
I'm the night sky that has given up the fight

You're an actor and you've won over this crowd
You're a painter and your colours are so loud
You're a breath mark, you let the silences slip in
I'm a shipwreck, no one knows where I've been
