Deliberate Spaces.

You said you would be my dream. I could have you every night and if, by morning, I had forgotten you, well, no big deal, it would be all right cause you are the reoccurring kind. You are the reoccurring kind. You never really leave my mind. Are you the love of my lifetime? ‘Cause there have been times I have had my doubts. We were just kids when I first kissed you in the attic of my parents house, and I wish we were there now. It took so long to figure out what this book has been about. Now I write when I’m away letters that you never read. You said go to explore those other women, the geography of their bodies but there is just one map you’ll need. You are a boomerang. You’ll see. You will return to me.
You will. You? Will.

I can hear your heart
On the radio beat
They’re playing ‘Chasing Cars’
And I thought of us
Back to the time,
You were lying next to me
I looked across and fell in love
So I took your hand
Back through lamp lit streets I knew
Everything led back to you
So can you see the stars?
Over Amsterdam
You’re the song my heart is
Beating to

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us hom

You there,
you’re better off here.
Funny it takes no time to fall back down…
Uncover your eyes

Autumn Tree

I wait but you’re gone
Mind tells the heart to linger on

Why does she make sure to be so immature about these things,
I don’t want you to change around it
And sometimes this love will end and all will be forgotten
then someday we will laugh about it

And you say that it’s alright
And I know that it’s a lie
From the black in your eyes

You don’t have to do this on your own
Like there’s no one that cares about you
You don’t have to act like you’re alone
Like the walls are closing in around you

You don’t have to pretend no one knows
Like there’s no one that understands you
I’m not just some face you used to know
I know all about you

And you should know that someone cares about you
I know all about you

Here I am still holding on you’re finding ways to break the bonds, they’re stronger than you realize
You could say that I’ve not tried, I’ve let you down, left you behind but you’re the one who’s saying goodbye
And you say that it’s alright
And I know that it’s a lie
From the black in your eyes

Tightrope

The things I gave away
They’re not coming back for me
Should’ve learned from my mistakes but I never do
As I lay here all alone
I hang up before I call
And admit to all my faults to pass the time

So now I’m walking on a tightrope wire
Too far off the ground
I’m imagining the words you said when last I saw your mouth
Yes, I’m walking on a tightrope wire
So afraid to fall
And I’d tell you that I miss you but I’m sure it doesn’t matter at all

There’s a place we used to go
Today I went alone
If there’s a message in this song
Well I don’t know

Can’t get you out of my mind these days

Can’t get you out of my mind these days

Today I’m not myself
And you, you’re someone else
And all these rules don’t fit
And all that starts can quit

What a peculiar state we’re in
What a peculiar state we’re in

Let’s play a game
Where all of the lives we lead can change
Let’s play a game
Where nothing that we can see, the same

We’ll find other pieces to the puzzles
Slipping out under the locks
I can show you how many moves to check mate right now
We can take apart this life we’re building
And pack it up inside a box
All that really matters is we’re doing it right now
Right now

Yeah, I’d say my job comes with some perks
