New Orleans #1 by Grant Guy

I am coming with my hand outstretched
Fuck it    I am coming to embrace your virtues and sins
Like a naughty lover warmed by the sultry night sky

We will bust the windows of our protection
Break open a dance made of stars and sweat
Straight up Straight down

Our song of love will fall between Heaven and Hell
We will be the fluid of one

We will both wear proudly our grass stains
