The Violet Drum Girl

Written by Callie Cheng

Play that dark synth,
Little violet drum girl!
Make my heart beat,
Or if you’d wish, make her swirl.

Indigo hues—
Oh Night hums your tone,
And strumming that moon,
May he dance not alone.

Wash me in harmony,
To grass-whispered chords,
Sip such a love to me,
If to you I’ve been poured.
