take care
she will fall on you like weather
you don't hear a thing
but the beating of wings
& the lights go up -

there you are
standing in the doorway
with a cigarette,
you say -
hey rock'n'roll, did you really have to sell your soul
or were you just playing the fool
that shame is mine,
you know i've done it too
nineteen's fire & the lighthouses burn out at twentytwo

she will come
to any whispered invitation
try to send her away
she did not come here to play
she ain't leaving emptyhanded

and there we are
here we are

you say time isn't mine to save or to waste
but i might stick around till the seasons change,
sure
and the fortunate ones will always get to choose
nineteen's fire & the lighthouses burn out at twentytwo

take care
she will fall on you like weather
you don't hear a thing but the beating of wings
& the lights go out

and there you are
