been shedding my winter skin
with all the sadness it held within
my head is filled with melting snow
and thoughts of letting go
and letting myself grow
into the summer machine

mix the sun's rays
with this newfound optimism
make a sculpture
the first one i've ever been
happy with

so i guess it's safe to say
that the seasons have changed

been shedding my winter skin
the long dark days were wearing me thin
in my chest this engine
is refueled and has a new beat
now i'll try my best to be
the summer machine

now i will make this positivity corporeal
so hold my hand and smile and scream
we are the dream

but sometimes the only way
of looking forward is to throw your eyes as far as you can
and hope it's a nice place where they land
