lyrics

We’re almost there, I’d recognise that hotel anywhere. Just a few more miles left. This will be the first time in a year since we were last here. It feels good to hear the clocks again and all looks the same. For now I’m only seven, I don’t quite understand the bottles on the window sill. But if you said these triangles were mountains, I’d imagine them as such because I had no reason to disbelieve you. I had faith you’d point me the right way. I remember jars filled to the brim with coins and I always wanted to take a few, but I knew better than that. So I just thought I’d let you know that everyone back home is thinking of you and that I made words from your leftover belongings. I’m not the boy you use to know anymore, I’ve grown up and I’m fine and I crave a love so deep, the oceans would be jealous. But I think I have that though. I’m sure I do. We’re almost there. Just one more mile left. I’m tired but I can stay awake for this. And through the rain I see the stairs, they’re a little smaller than I remember
but my eyes are glazed with good intentions and lack of sleep. I walk and listen to hear a voice ringing in my ears. I hold my breath half asleep but safe.

Not a thing here has changed.
