your tears fell on my sleeve
t-shirts in frigid winter breeze
you clutched my back as hard as you could
"we're all so fucked up;
we have to better
I have to better
this place is supposed to mean something;
we're supposed to change the world"
"seek to love, not to be loved
but it's so difficult"
➖ I told you it takes a lifetime.
but you've done so well already;
I'm more proud of you than I will ever be of myself
and if there is a god, it's in you
you're the thread that this house balances on
you're the roof over my head
and if you're out in the cold
then I will fucking stay out with you
if you're out in the cold,
then I will stay out with you
sobbing / drunk / 21 year-old kid
I knew it was
the most sincere statement
that I'd ever fucking heard.
your tears fall on my sleeve;
you tell me about your grandmother.
said she raised you
I can hear you now.
they have to pull the plug; it falls to me
so, I'll say goodbye
and you can sleep.
