'past, us'

i know a boy
who'd die in a shared moment
to watch it's perfection
forever

perpetual sunset at noon

i knew a boy in a dream
who'd pray to never wake up
but when he did
he couldn't remember any new dreams

(no time for regret)

past, us
post, us
now is never new

the shape i'll build
-that space on the windowsill-
will have room for you /
i i'll be there
/will have room for you

'try'

its here
its in the middle
between us
living

you're here
you're behind me
i'm warmer
i'm alive

i'm here
i'm breathing
i'm trying
still i try

all the world's the same
and the words change
we'll never change
and the words stay the same

full moon
change together
real dream
is forever

new moon
change together
real dream
is forever

'tribute'

your smile
curling up in smoke
i return and prostrate thru
the temple of you

palms raised
incense of your breath
return innocence
the silence holds something more

she is lucky
she is blessed
she increases
still has less
this is tribute this is tribute
kadosh kadosh kadosh

arch my
back on the altar
you were hatched on
ceremonies somehow in my memories

this is ancient tribute
won for you
ease it thru
partition whispers
think renew
this is always how its done

she is lucky
she is blessed
she increases
still has less
this is tribute this is tribute
kadosh kadosh kadosh

pulse is nothing

pulse is nothing
press is nothing
give me something

i think i'd try telepathy
when words seem sophistry
                    cuz u + me
                          our mouths tied
                           mean less to think + more to say
                           i pray in sleep to understand these things

tonight, tonight

love is hid behind a black hole
    can't you see through me?
  I promise there's light behind
             it's bright i'm blind
             I'm dumb I'm sorry - i didn't lie-

made mistake I'm sorry

      Please don't darken your memory
                 or throw it away
                     float me away

           I'll do anything - I can! -
               to keep you warm
                                again

Time is never time at all

You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth
And our lives are forever changed
We will never be the same
The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe
That life can change, that you're not stuck in vain
We're not the same, we're different tonight

Tonight, so bright
Tonight

And you know you're never sure
But you're sure you could be right
If you held yourself up to the light
And the embers never fade in your city by the lake
The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe
In the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe there's not a chance tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight

We'll crucify the insincere tonight
We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight

Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight
