lyrics

i did not
til that morning realize
the sheer full wrought
size of your common stop sign
they span
from wall to living room wall
i can
not think of a better cure at all
for a hangover
i sleep
for twelve fine hours a day
to keep
conscious thought away
and sometimes i swear
that the colors in my dreams
are beyond compare
with any i have seen
with open eyes
and you know life is long
and longing never forgone
but here's hoping this song's
gravity pulls us along
in all your footfalls
must follow a lingering tune
weaving wavelengths 'round
the air where your curves move
and hope hangs with christ
tied up in that suicide
but god what is there i
haven't already tried
that rainy
three-mile walk all for
some candy
from your register
i'd make
twice and not give a fuck
how late
for work i was
i was
and you know life is long
and longing never forgone
but here's hoping this song's
gravity pulls us along
in all your footfalls
must follow a lingering tune
weaving wavelengths 'round
the air where your curves move
and hope hangs with christ
tied up in that suicide
but god what is there i
haven't already tried
in all your footfalls
must follow a lingering tune
weaving wavelengths 'round
the air where your curves move
and as long as i care
to carry a melody
where i'll go is where
i might keep you near to me
i said
where i'll go is where
i might keep you near to me
