My conversation skills are a mess
I attribute this to many broken words
I’ve memorized the length of your address
And all its curls

Someday, maybe
We’ll talk about the way we used to laugh
Count it down, baby
Fill the list with anything you lack
One by one you know I’ve got your back

We stayed up late and talked about the past
Put a spin on anything too dark
Our memories no longer what they were
Amber sparks

When you feel a cold dark forming
No glare to mark your way
Out of spite, the sun is going to find you
Burst and blind you

We figure out our method to survive
Tangled knot tied tight with baling wire
Stride to stride much shorter than before
Feet to floor

Someday, maybe
We’ll talk about the way we used to laugh
Count it down, baby
Fill the bag with anything you lack
With no receipt, there’s nothing to take back
