I am a dragonfly
I’ve been here a while
In the rooms where you sleep
Where you sit
Where you file
All of your records
And old photographs
I’m trying to tell you something

I am the light at the end of the hall
The things that you know, man you don’t know at all
Close your eyes, put down the receiver
I’m trying to tell you something

I turn on the tap
To slow down the show
You catch me on camera
In the corner I glow
I’m speaking a language
That you’ll understand
I’m trying to tell you something

You live in nostalgia
And fear for the future
The age of distraction
Is no age at all
There’s much to be learned
From the nothing but silence
The light at the end of the hall

I am dragonfly
I came here to rest
Not far from the music
So close to your chest
Keep closing your eyes to open your mind
I’m trying to tell you something

I gave you a glimpse
I was here now in gone
You put words on my wings just by writing this song
Go back to the pavement
Go get lost in the fray
Remember this dragonfly flying away
