lyrics

falling asleep in the cracks on your forehead
please smile in your chair by my window til’ we’re both dead
we’re grinding our toes in the dirt by the water
the sun on us, dancing, like nobody taught her

please give me the light on our sheets in the morning
your eyes in the dark next to mine, laughing or yawning
the broken down noise at the back of my knees
when you walk in and lodge there like shivering pine trees

and I will hold all the worries you can find
and you will build little houses in my mind
and we will speak with your footprints and my hand
and we will wail like a hot-sidewalk brass-band

you are digging your roots in the roads I am crossing
I’ve got all my sights on the coin we are tossing
please fill all my jam jars with flowers you stumble
and sing when it’s so late that we should only mumble

your words in the doorframe, my letters on your ceiling
climbing up trees like our hands won’t need healing
oh I wish I could tell you 100 enough times
that I do plan to give you every clock that I can find

and we will grow and wilt, on the shingles of the roof
and we will dance our way through long forgotten truth
and I will bleed all of your bruises from my eyes
and we will never really trouble with goodbyes
