Indigo Child
Tinashe Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I can feel your heart stop
I can see the future
I can change the whole world
I'll rewrite the scripture
I'm a beacon of light
I'm the dark of winter
I'll erase the old ways
Like a new beginning
I can see the future
Don't let it [?] ya
Knock 'em out the window

Indigo child this is the time
I can read your mind
Facing the world
Running in circles
Everyone is running in circles
Indigo child
This ain't losing your mind now
But they don't understand
Don't let if get to your head
And you feel it

I can feel your heart stop
I can see the future
I can change the whole world
I'll rewrite the scripture
I'm a beacon of light
In the dark of winter
I'll erase the old ways
Like a new beginning

I can feel your heart stop
I can see the future
I can change the whole world
I'll rewrite the scripture
I'm a beacon of light
In the dark of winter




In the race against time
I'll come out a winner
