Barcelona window

{whispered:} [second guess]

I can hear laughter
swimming through my window
burnt orange petals
moving in my eyes

unwrap me
untrap me
you and I
here we hide away

someone is working
someone is waiting
someone is wasted
but that’s outside
and we are breathing
we’re not moving
dreaming in Spanish
safe and still

unwrap me
un…trap me
you and I
here we hide away
yes, you and I
here we hide away

oooh

commentary
I believe I detect a Jane Siberry influence in the vocal on this track. What do you think?
