Chais pas pourquoi, I don’t know why

But there’s this feeling of anticipation
Right in the center of my chest
It rushes up through my wind pipes
And floods my eyes with tears
I can’t quite put a finger on it
But it feels like something is happening
Or rather, something big is about to happen
Chais pas pourquoi, I don’t know why 
But there’s this feeling of change
Almost as though I can feel the earth spin on its axis
There’s the impression, but no direct movement
There’s a different aura in the air
I wonder what it might be, this thing that’s happening
Or maybe.  Just maybe…
…Of course, I’m hallucinating again.
