Lyrics

An earthen tortilla wrapped up
In a wooden sleeping bag
A micro-expression betrays that
I am feeling sad
Branches assembled in a tent
Filled with embers
Though the fire goes out
The light is remembered

A delicate tourniquet
Hurts a bit
But keeps us from sleep
The sticky gauze, gives us pause
We sigh because
The wound is too deep

And I don’t want to sleep quite yet
I might just forget to forget
I heard your voice calling from the clouds
But the sky opened up
The sky opened up
And you were not there

The canvas starts melting
As it mocks our behavior
The colors we taste
Are the ones we don’t savor
A tree filled with stones
Just waiting to fall
You stood underneath
When I felt too small

A tightened string is everything
We need to sing
So hand me a verse
I’ll play for you, as lovers do
It’s nothing new
But it could be worse

And I don’t want to sleep quite yet
I might just forget to forget
I heard your voice calling from the clouds
But the sky opened up
The sky opened up
And you were not there
