Chin Up

With your eyes closed,

Watching a strange show

Play out in your head,

But you were smiling somehow

And your day froze,

And everyone in it

Sat still as a rose,

But we were moving somehow.

 

Back to where we started,

Losing who we were,

Maybe we should only

Tip a bottle back to keep us filled up.

 

Back to where we started,

Losing who we were,

Everybody knows that,

You’d break your neck to keep your chin up.

 

Open your eyes,

And the drops come,

in a snail raced down to your neck,

And looked up,

But you were smiling somehow.

 

Back to where we started,

Losing who we were,

Maybe we should only

Tip a bottle back to keep us filled up.

 

Back to where we started,

Losing who we were,

Everybody knows that

You’d break your neck to keep your chin up.

 

~ Copeland, "Chin Up".

 

Picture has nothing to do with song. I just really love that song.

I freaking LOVE poppies.

 

Oh, and I know this is late-ish, but happy mother's day !
