lyrics

Time & time again,
close your eyes. Ignore the warnings,
even as coastlines of your joys draw closed,
like deep blue blinds on windows
soak the rooms we share in shadow.
Try as we might to let the bad go,
it’s the ink with which we write
the streetlit stories of our lives.
I am, I am.

Time & time again,
where do you work? Where are you broken
like the white wing of your bedroom door,
kicked open once then closed no more.
I believed when I was young
what’s spoken by those Trojan tongues.
And jumped off fearless more than once
the bridge on which my heart is strung,
I am, I am.

But you’re a birthday, deep with the dayshine.
From dusk to moonbreak, the dust of keepsakes.

Time & time again, I am. I am.
