There's a creek somewhere that held him close
That curls up now in dry repose
We went back with rakes to clear the holes
So you couldn't tell that earth was old

Now he's stuck on the fourteenth floor and it's true
It's a messy divorce, but it's what people do
Give a face to a thought and hope it don't change
But it's not so easy to keep up that pace

But it's all I have done
Was I wrong enough to be without your love?
And I'm spread all around
Wasn't bright enough to fall within those bounds

There's a fence we build with shallow roots
That grow downward in a dark commute
And knocking it down seems easy enough
But the posts take a beating, and never come up

Foundations find their home
Far away from all the hate from which they'd grown
And we still feel it drag us down
And apart from what we'd thought was common ground

There's an awful range of honest lines
That never made it past your mind
Were we always stuck beneath that grate
With the words we couldn't conjugate?

And the running count of my mistakes
Is laughing at all the corrections I make
Been trying to settle a debt in my heart
But it isn't so easy to play that part

But it's all we could tell
Weren't sure enough to live without ourselves
