If I undressed you in the day, would you still act the same way that you did in the dark? Maybe we could save time that way. Maybe we could be done by nine.

If I just left you in the park, would you still walk home the same way like we did last year? Or would you try to save time on the way home if I wasn't here?

All the dust I swept away yesterday just returns as I stare. And one neighbor, he looks away as I walk by. Like you, he learns I'm not there.

On the drive out to the store, I trace your name out three times with my finger on my knee. I pretend you sit beside me as we drive towards a day ath the beach.

But all the rust on this old car falls away in the rain as I stare. I hear you say I have to change. I can not change. Of course I turn and you're not there.
