On your down days, I promise
I’ll be by your side reading lyrics again
from songs we made in our playlists.
I can still see you coming for the speaker,
we used to play next to your bed.
Those perfect moments, time was different
I came to take you, I know, oh I know
I’m the one waiting with all the words now.
I promise I know all the songs
that’ll pick you up and make you smile.
Even if, it were just a little bit of a change.
At least we’d have have all our lyrics
from songs in our nostalgic days.
Together or alone, go somewhere quiet
listen to the songs through the night.
I don’t want you to cut your hair,
take all the time you need to inhale.
I promise not to bother you day or night.
I’ll walk far away so you can’t feel
yesterday and that old you.
Oh I wish you’d learn to breathe in again.
You and I could take turns sharing so I
could help your coughing.
Days could pass like dog years,
a 7 year session, inside seven years
with you, it would only take a moment
to love love you all over again.
Natural serenade of our night swimming.
Spending down weekends exploring
going from one old bed and breakfast
to a room with a massive spa tub.
I need you your love in me,
it’s a charge to see that sparkle
coming from your eyes, that jump when
you look again and our eyes are locked.
I’ve never felt that kind of release.
when I’m lifting you a couple feet
off the ground up on the edge.
We are almost eye to eye. I swear I’ll come
to find you to lift you up again.
I need to see you, to smell the spot
buried in the back of your earlobe
underneath your hair and neck.
When we’re midnight dancing
under Northern Lights,
quiet goes those colorful lights
always bouncing off your bedroom ceiling.
The winter cold never found our bodies.
The natural warmth came in waves
flooding and curling toes,
it was loud at times.
Words between us weren’t always clean
sometimes they were loud and filthy
our lyrics helped drown our sounds
it was natures beauty
picked from our playlists.
