Set yourself back a step
and realize the changes made
with your lips unpressed at your doorstep
underneath you lamp post
its always yours
everything seemed to be yours
when I recall the times we’ve shared
because I’m still yours
memories lit my way
crawling back to your front porch
everything still looks the same
pity dawns a certain dress for all our dates
approach this like I’ll never get hurt
this tight rope I walk can’t bear my weight
look up to the sky the porch lights write out your name tonight
the stars all stare with their jealous eyes because you steal their skies
you know that jealousy bears a weight better than “we” would know
just turn back down and don’t let the porch lights fade
what I would do for you to crawl to me, for a change
we need a change so we go on
he’s on my mind sometimes
I can’t go back to feeling first knowing I’m second
we go on...
so just bury me, put an end to my days
the view from here seems cold but I know
that this is better than the view from your front porch
where I’ve laid, so many nights
alone at times without you
I wonder if I will ever forget the way you kiss me
will you ever forget me?
we need to talk
you need to crawl for once
memories still light my way
crawling to your house
where lips unpressed and silence met for the first time
