lyrics

These are the dreams that I wish I was having on a borrowed pillow far away from home on a bed of concrete or a bed of stone. I’m hearing songs through headphones that I wish I’d wrote. I’m not a poet, not a storyteller, not a singer. I just walk past wooden fences made to keep us out. We, the modern explorers, where every inch of ground has been built upon we search for sanctuary in the stillness of the highest rooftops that we could climb. We find comfort in a head nuzzled deeply into a chest. We whisper words and say that everything’s going to be alright. The summer sun still dripping off our skin, we find hope in knowing that this year the summer could be even better than the last. We spend all our time pacing the backstreets, swarming the alleyways, to raise our flags on the pebbled rooftops. And I almost feel eighteen again, as I turn to my insides, fighting this crippling loneliness to not let myself be worn down by the grind. We hear the echoes of our mothers’ voices as they call us home to no avail.
