are there no blinders on lights that glare
white noise on the eyes
from gas station lights and reflected ice glare
so that i can walk home by moonlight
alone

or can we go out to where the wind howls and stand to lean up against the trees
they've grown up so tall that you can't see the house
it's a fortress now but you know how it used to be
i can lie to myself
and say i like it
but i would love it if you were here

these words on paper smell like you
associated in random thought
on my lips the words turn blue
evidence i'm feeling lost
i can lie to myself
and say i like it
but i would love it if you were here
i'm just sad for myself
cause i know you're clear
but i would love it if you were here

i can just see you show me your garden
i thought you'd grow roses and grapes on low vines
i wanted to know you when we were both older
i thought there'd be more of those wonderful times
i can lie to myslef
and say i like it
but i would love it if you were here
i'm just sad for myself
cause i know you're clear
but i would love it if you were here
you were here
yes you were
yes you were
