now that its june, we'll sleep out in the garden
where it is quiet and much cooler than the house is
because i have learned that nothing is as pressing
and i'm content to walk a little slower
and i find that life is easier when it's just a blur
so when the ending comes the full regret will be obscure
and this apartment could not be prettier as we danced up there alone
difference in the shades?
and i believe we are the same
the light collects and projects your heart on a movie screen
we will always be the way we were that night
and you slept in my blood the way you sleep now
and when the doctors have gone and you sweat through the bed
just rest now, and in a moment you will know everything
it's too vague now to recount.
