when we talked i tried to remember all the best phrases you said so i could write this song with your words repeating in my head. done a number on myself from substance, and from trauma. pretty sure i dont know what came first (chicken or the egg). i heard something beautiful flutter out your mouth. and i know you meant it. and you know i listened to it. these are shapes not words, feelings i have learned. pretending im fearless, i break. if im so young then why does my mind make so many mistakes? wanna remember every detail. gonna hold out for the times when we're face to face. cold wind through the window and the twinkle lights. when you're here, passport stamped, there's more tears than i'd like but it's just a natural reaction to wanting more out of life. it works for now, it's gotta work for now. im alone with sentiments and realities of love. im alone not doing much and staring at my phone.
