(listening to glass playing

music by glass)

 

i’m too restless
i’m way too restless
i’m restless.                                 i’m restless
i’m too too restless, restless

want to, move dance shift get up &
i’m too moved & restless to get up &
moved too, move & restless, move to get
around & restless move restless restless
