candlelight

a cart lined with empty promises rattles through the streets at night. all that she owns inside but i would need a truck,
a moving van of cluttered nonsense unfortunate to own.

i can't see value in it but she
sees the value in her hands as time wears on. she fights and burrows through the baggage 'til the end, the physical and sings it through the night.

the briefest reverie of untold melodies of merchant bells runs through the purple night. her songs keep her company while others raise their families and keep torches in the night, the torchlight through the night

and on the way she leaned in and told me secretly "you'll never get out if you care" enslaved 'til the day you get out of their way the candle extinguished is free, it's free

maggie said they make it hard on you but what are they gonna do 'cuz they can't let you die. they think they're so much better 'cuz they've run this race together but i know better and i've told you so now you know it too. (ah ah)

a callous hand denies her and
her calloused hand defines her.

maggie leaned in closely and whispered in my ear "you'll never get out if you care." discard all the chatter forget all that matters the candle extinguished is free.
it's free like you'll never be.
