Album: Historian (2018)

  • You said "don't go changing
    I'll rearrange to let you in
    And I'll be your historian
    And you'll be mine
    And I'll fill pages of scribbled ink
    Hoping the words carry meaning"

    Then one day, the motorcade
    Covered in flower wreaths
    First in a big parade
    Will come to take one of us away
    Leaving the other with plenty to read

    This is what I want to talk about
    But somehow the words will not leave my mouth

    Was I most complete at the beginning or the bow?
    If past you were to meet future me
    Would you be holding me here and now? Writer/s: Lucy Dacus
