lyrics

Put your hand upon the table, and my hands there beside yours
And all the history between us has put a quiver in my voice
And you’re asking me how are you?
Say, how’ve you been my love,
And my words are tiny pebbles, I will spill them one by one
I say my heart is awful heavy, I am miles and miles from home
So I have made myself a roadmap from the lyrics in your song
And I know I give you up and that I look for you again
But I get lost each time I try to let the blossom ring you in
I have racked my mind for this, but can’t remember what it means
I know nothing of that softness, I don’t understand the spring.

Now im lying in your bedroom, and the morning time has come
In through your paper curtains, the first glimpses of the sun
And your room is full of relics, of a girl you used to know
Her jewelry on your bedside, her paintings on your wall
But now her face is in your pillow, and her coat is on your floor
Her head is full of fire, her shoes are by the door,
But I see time has come to waltz you off just like time tends to do
And you are with your Emily, I with my memories of you
Yeah you are with your Emily, and I with my memories of you

What am I doing here?
It was a long, long night and I was driving down your road
And your door was open wide and I knew you weren’t home,
Just leaving on the porch light, for any lost soul in the dark
Yeah it was a long long night
With these memories hitting hard

Swimming in the deepest space, where I am wrecked but I’m alright
And if this never comes again, it was the best thing in my life
Swimming in the deepest space where I am wrong in all I am
And if this never comes again you were the truest thing I had
Remembering the statuettes, on the gray streets of Madrid
You came at me with all your love and I turned into one of them
Remembering the statuettes on the gray streets of Madrid
You came at me with all you had, and I turned into one of them
Remember your emotions ran like foreign venom in your veins
Kicking at the bed until you finally found a way to fall asleep
Remember how my fever ran, in the days after you’d gone
Cause even as my mind it wouldn’t say, my body knew what it had done
Swimming in the deepest space
Swimming in the deepest space, the cosmic mess behind my eyes
And if this never comes again, well it was real and it was right

So I’ll write you in my lyrics, I will sing you in my songs
Move west among the sagebrush, you’ll stay east amid the moss
And I’ll find some quiet solace, in the way that all things end,
But I will say there was a love that just burned brighter than the rest
Yes I will know I found a love that just burned brighter than the rest

And I will dream we are together, for our final earthly breath
But it would seem I’m cursed to live a thousand lifetimes until then
And someday I’ll be as ancient as I’ve felt since I was young
And I will know that all my memories, are just a story I was told
