I fell asleep outside your bedroom door
Opposite blankets on your bedroom floor
That you'd stuffed under gaps to fight the creeping cold
You slipped folded letters through a keyhole

And I'd decipher your cursive and your capitals
So I could polarize and steal sentiment from song
You fell asleep beside your open book
Where love is a cliche and a redundant hook

But your dreams are still wrapped around it, anyway
You placed your head upon your pillowcase
Slipped into dreams that I can't seem to face
Sleeping carefully, praying you won't wake alone
I paced up and down your staircase
And whittled all the words you didn't say
Into little anchors, just enough to drag me down
They say we draw our destinies with our own hands
But really our pencils never move the way we plan

So we just hope to end with something we can love
The peeking sun found me at your doorway
Gave me a blanket and sent me on my way
And I knocked once more to be sure everything was alright

You pushed a crinkled paper through the keyhole
That said "We can't be certain that the door will always be closed"
I dropped the blanket and laid back down on the floor
