dive down chase sounds they float they swim they get dim take flight breathe in clouds form grow thin they move on we just spin keep up head down they come they go hang around short lived a new wave rolling in it destroys then it fades saw your reflection in the train on the next track hard to catch you when you’re always moving so fast don't sleep don't drown it repeats hides out gets found starts quiet gets loud ends up noise static lost in the crowd woke up walking over water on the train tracks I don't why it seems the same ones always come back I’ll make nice with the ones that haunt me count twice all the ghosts that I can't see I look for you in my dreams I get so lost in the days it's all these nights I cant sleep it’s hard to stay in one place we get entangled in time we drift like light on a wave some days it’s more like a sound so loud it cracks and it breaks in all my visions of you it’s not exactly your face some of the details I lose some of the time gets erased cant draw the shape of your eyes cant get it right on the page sometimes it's less of a lie to let some truth get away
Shallows 04:39
goodnight my friend morning came early again but sea stars are still stars and you can't see stars in the day the full moon stays up so late and I appreciate that you went to some length to help me count before daybreak so what happens in the shallows tell me how the moon slips into the water whispers secrets to the corals pulls me out a little farther out past the shallows take me past the shallows the waves crash hard beyond the break I want to slip into shadows take me past the shallows watch the full moon falter and fade out past the shallows I want to fall through the shadows out past the shallows take me out a little farther take me deeper and darker take me out a little farther take me deeper and darker take me out a little farther take me
