lyrics

We’d watch the sun set behind the field beside the house we’d haunt and we’d talk about the things we want from life and what we’ve lost. We’d shed our clothes to feel the cold and God, we were fine in the quiet grasp of true blue eyes. All the while the clocks tried to take our blood and the hands around my neck held on tight. Still, we tried to find a smile. But I swear it never stayed this cold on the nights we spent in the worst parts of this town, trying to hold it together. Trying to wait out the weather. Maybe it was the warmth of another soul that had been cut up the same. There’s nothing like another ghost stuck in their ways. But I’ll be home tonight, for the cold and all the bright lights and because winter these days means that everyone’s as miserable as me. But when I get home tonight, we’ll trade tales of what we have seen this year and I’ll miss it like hell, but we built something here. I’ve lost track of where we’re going, are you settling again? Are you missing the way we use to play? Because I am.

And as I’m counting down the sunsets until I leave to settle down, the radio plays on and for once, I feel like I’m where I want to be.
