Turn Off My Phone (And Be With You)

Turn Off My Phone (And Be With You)

A Poem by Sean William Russell Smith

my head is full of noise 
I need to find that silence 
the stillness of your joy 
to be here with you 
there is little that i need 
remove all distractions 
delight in what you bring 

so i turn off my phone and be with you 

i cut the chord and pull the plug 
the real connection is in your love 
i miss your signal when the power is on 
but in your lovin' is where i belong 

i'm always indoors 
i want my toes to feel 
some natural floors 
with beautiful landscapes 
that only you can paint 
it's something a screen just 
can't imitate 

so i turn off my phone and be with you 

i need some time uninterrupted 

because power lines 
are tangling the life that i wish i lead 
but i'm too scared to pull the plug 
and satellites 
hover all around and i wish i would 
lose service but i don't enough 
i give these apps permission to track 
every single move i make 
i know - it's kind of weird 
living in this world where everything is monitored 
it's everything that george orwell feared 

but i have no fear with you 

so i turn off my phone and be with you
