an unbearable weight
the far sight of it
the long pull of fate
as to how it will begin

in the wind and the rain
or from the veins to the drain
or in the folds of a face
growing old and thin

it's a call from you
on what i thought was nothing but
a normal afternoon
and the awful news

see the birds in the tree
a whole family
and the space between the leaves
that lets the sunlight in

i want to feel that safe
wrap the trust in things
will it always feel fake
or could i find it again?

is it a sane thing to think
that it was always this way
in a sense, meant to be
or really never hadn't been

and the fear that it brings
to feel how temporary
are all the very things
that make you most want to live

cause i just wanna sing a
song with you
if we've got time just hold you close and share an afternoon
and let a smile break through

i just wanna walk along with you
and try for this short time to keep my eyes on
this astounding view
and let these moments bloom
