And her shadow still follows after me
Even when I try to go to sleep
And it floats above and dives into my dreams
Finding lost and deeply buried things

You wanted to unravel

And her shadow is projected up across the bedroom wall
When I wake up and feel my dreams dissolve.
And it dances there until I look away
To the pillow where there’s a sleeping face.

You wanted to unravel
You wanted to escape

And here is a birthday
An anniversary
The notes you wrote
And here are the empty rings
The records of the songs you sing
The clothes you left... are hanging in the closet

And her shadow runs out in front of me
And waits until I cross the street
And it takes me to all the places that we met
To the house and our apartment

You’re trying to forget

And so I go out to find the darkest room
Til I become a shadow too
And weightless and shameless I go to visit her
Arrive there cold and self-assured

You wanted their affection
You wanted it to end

You wanted their attention
You wanted it to end

And this was a wedding gift
The photos you thought you hid
The poems I wrote
And here are the friends you lost
The glances on the old sidewalk
The questions that come
And here’s the last place we kissed
The papers that he helped you print
My number on your screen... but we’re not trying to speak
