i sometimes find myself staring down a long hallway with the figures of the future all laid out in front of me hearing echoes of the song i hope they'll continue to sing drawing me in with the faintest signal coming back to here and now making whirlpools where i live pulling inward with the sounds of uncertainty and urgency and will you still be around and go on this way with pumpkins in autumn and then ice creams in spring walking far close to our home, hands scented mint and rosemary oh this life that we know has become a comfort to me slow and steady i try to notice all the ways you grow my heart i try to follow, try to capture try to stay close to what we've got cause i know the details of these moments may someday melt away but can it wait

i told myself i'd get it done today i picked the pieces up and made a plan for everything i spread my mind to let it go and there it went i let my heart believe that this time would be different but it's always in the background listening waiting patiently on a high cloud yesterday will be revisited a broken ghost that demands a crown will you let me go, will you set me free? if only just to go back to where i used to be you'd never know a peacock's bright unless it opens you'd never think that trees can speak until you spoke to one but it's always in the background listening waiting patiently on a high cloud yesterday will be revisited a broken ghost that demands a crown i know you gave me this, and i do appreciate it but you must know there's so many things for which i'd glady trade it a finger for a ring, a hand to let it go two strong arms to push a body in a barely floating boat but it's always in the background listening waiting patiently on a high cloud yesterday will be revisited a broken ghost that demands a crown

i try to reach back into the memory and pick out a specific phrase, find the words that i'd heard you say as though they were a line in a play, written to be kept and said again another day i try to trace the shape of your voice as we talk left with only stains, whispers through an amplifier reminders but no real find oh, these are the bits of stone i use to build an image of you

bird-flown nests that only reflect headphone soundtracks powering my own tree trunk legs down a road that's headed to nowhere i know the june sun flaps like wings in the wind makes fun of all my beads of sweat and unwittingly fills my head with ideas to turn and go back again just because you let this go doesn't make you a deserter you don't have to lose all hope to become someone deserving of a full and joyful life, it's okay, no don't think there's just one change that i need only then will i be complete there's no such thing don't think you're beholden to one thin string there's a freedom in unravelling and the cast away william wallace did lose his head one london august twenty third they called home to say he was dead at that point he'd done all he could, and i hope it's not too forward to say considering your particular case it's probably not too late for a start at living the life that you want and a healthy fear of the unknown doesn't make you a bad searcher til now you've gone quite far all alone but take my hand and go further the horizon is what makes the sun move don't think there's just one change that i need only then will i be complete there's no such thing don't think you're beholden to one thin string there's a freedom in unravelling and the cast away you don't need big letters for your name spill your heart in invisible ink and the message will stay don't think there's some distant delivery if it happens then i'll be happy so i'll just wait cause you might be on hold for your whole damn life there's just now there's no other time
