"this ending is all but an ending," he said,
"i don't get why, but i might when i'm older."

when we get older
when we get older

i will get it all:
every toll i paid en route to escape,
career choice and how we could create
such movement
how we'd move according
to one another,
to what the other
knew they yearned to say

so it'd be better if we did this now,
not rot away in our hometown,
but rather reach for some common goal like
building forts rather than sleeping in, or worse,
through everything we've ever wanted

yeah it'd be better if we did this now
'cause later on when we figure out how much more we could've done
(and we could've, we could've, we could've done more)
we'll try and justify our stagnancies
and then be bitter and tired and lost and afraid
and i'll be trying to not get so down about it

on my bedroom floor,
choking on my words,
trying to sing yours,

"this ending is all but an ending," he said,
"i don't get why, but i will if you stay here with me"
