The city shines A silver street lamp glistens in the snow Shiver as I'm walking by Just knowing what I know I guess this wild wanderlust Just got out of control Wish I could apologize And come in from the cold
Where are you going? Or where you been? Questions that you'll never ask again
I heard the words I took my turn Another eulogy Not sure I can hang if this Is how it's gonna be We reminisce on innocence Then plunge into the sea The Super 8 keeps flickering With choppy memories
Spent decades in search of What meant so much to you Then sold the whole collection Because the rent was due
You clenched your fist And threw the dish And called me Peter Pan Your aim's not very accurate And I thank God for that Although I told you many times I'm not much of a man You held out hope Believing that at least I might pretend Vacuumed up all of the fairy dust Held Savasana on the floor Just felt like dying When you thought of us You clapped your hands And hoped for an encore
So young and sunburnt We walked on an empty beach The surface was so shiny With nothing underneath
There's tulips in the wheelbarrow There's cherries in the tree There's a comet in the sky at least One night a century And I will always wait for you If you will wait for me Like a baby or apocalypse That we will never see
Little infant in a plastic box Shedding incubator tears She doesn't know yet what a comet does You're approaching even as you disappear
"We used to have these like bins" "I know, they were so cool" There were thousands of them"
"When you're alone, and you're not, doesn't really matter" "Consider the source"
"Sorry baby, I was dreaming of you, you were in my dreams"
