heavy head, fragile heart
i met you half way, you did your part
search for the floor with pine needle feet
that nightmare you had was disguised as a dream
you put on your glasses with one weary hand
you heard all the things your eyes don't understand
fill up your cup, float out the window
you had an appointment with time, but you didn't show
will it ever cease?
this meaningless crease
in the folding of our sheets
that are stained with love and grief
it's in the whispers of the trees,
the detachment of the sea
did you mean what you said to me?
it's time for toast and tea
so we packed up our lives in tiny boxes
laughed all about living in paradoxes
i count all the cracks i see in the street
how do you make friends when there's no one to meet?
i followed my shadow to the end of the earth
i wanted to be who i was before birth
i put my hand all the way up to the glass
i'll never heal until you sign my cast
