lyrics

In the absence of bigger problems,
We learned to magnify the small ones

Shuffle forward on your heels to keep from drifting,
To keep ourselves from backing through the door
The times we stayed up on the phone,
The times we wandered off alone,
Can you still reach us?
Can we still reach beyond the arms of the chair?
The things we bought and never used,
The times we sought our own abuse,
And did it teach us?
Is the pencil doomed to trace through its old grooves?

We will walk back home
We will wake back up

Day late for class so we stopped showing up
Aged state of glass policed and kept breaking up
And it shimmered haplessly, but we gave it up

Said blue ink lasts longer than black
There’s no significance in that

The times we polished our own shoes
The times we tied them on too loose and never knew
The times we came up with a plan,
The times we came to understand,
Without you, there’s no use

Mom found out…

Over my shoulder I saw you turning back around
And we believe it now, still no matter how I try
Everything’s out of place,
And from far away, it still looks the same
It’s not your fault we couldn’t change,
It’s not your fault we couldn’t fix our old mistakes

“Where was our luck when we needed it?”¹
Found a solid place to stand,
As long as we could keep still
Counted our last remaining breaths
As a measure of success



¹Crash of Rhinos - "Big Sea"
