Sometimes I try to find you
In the air before it rains
The hiss of cassette tapes
And the way I pause before I say your name

Cause I remember everything
But the sound of your voice
Fading from the back
Of my mind

And we stayed up talking
After everybody went to sleep
I realized how things can change so quickly

We were singing that record at the top of our lungs
Drinking till we couldn’t even fill our cups
When the threads of our conversation tangled up
You said,” hey can I stay” I said, “why not?”

I found a couple things you left
In the pocket of my jeans
Some messages you sent
That I can’t bear to delete

A note on my arm
In permanent marker
From when we were standing outside
Of the bar

And we stayed up talking
After everybody went to sleep
I realized how things can change so quickly

We were singing that record at the top of our lungs
Drinking till we couldn’t even fill our cups
When the threads of our conversation tangled up
You said,” hey can I stay” I said, “why not?”

When we woke up we were at the beach
We ran into the water smiling
I’m not sure what there is that comes after this

If there’s not anywhere to go
But darkness all alone
Please know my heart will always be your home
