Auditory Part Two

from by Thrift Store Talent



don't know how i envisioned it then
still i keep asking what words Riley meant
another word tore me apart
when you saw the pictures i thought of as art

but life goes and goes and goes
until you can't make out ashes from snow
until you try coming the same way you go
until you keep fire in your eyes
until you've perfected surprise

that's why it looks easy for me
the last time i took something seriously
it's probably the same way for you
pouring through pictures and missing our youth

but time runs and runs and runs
until you forget how we ever got along
until you can't listen without hating my songs
until there's no fire in your eyes
until you stop being surprised

tonight on the way home i stopped
across from the street where i thought you still walked
not sure if i wanted to see
or just wanted someone who's as lonely as me
the first time i felt your bare skin
freckled and whiter than angels have been
we wasted five days sleeping in
and tangled up more than my laces and grin
we promised forever and that's what we meant
we had it. we wanted it; every piece and part of it
we had it. we had it. we had it

but love slows and slows and slows
til i don't touch more than your clothes
until you don't wonder when i'm coming home
until we forget the feel
