We ride the curves of each others words like roller coasters at amusement parks.
We constantly tangle the strings that attach us and we complain that the knots won’t come undone.
People are convinced that hearts don’t do the feeling and I just can’t get over the fact that mine keeps beating.
I’m breathing today, I just took another breath
The sun is climbing through my window, trying to tell me the story of how it met the moon
And here I am dizzying myself with mouths and arms and legs all carrying loads they aren’t indebted to
My soul is panting with all the disaster it needs to feel
If the stars don’t show without the dark and the waves don’t exist without the sea
then I’m convinced without you all my flaws would ever be
are noise and jammed buttons on elevator doors
But you see the shadows on the moon
And I think without chaos the universe wouldn’t know how to feel
Even the sky knows what it’s like to leave tear stains behind
That’s why the grass is wet in the morning and the thunder crashes at night
When the lonely lay awake and the sky comes to join
