written in 2016 for Mingus

lyrics

When you're alone with me
Do you feel entirely free?
Is the whole world made of gold
Or dusted in blue, a shade or a hue?
Is it glistening in the daylight?
Blocking the glare in your favorite chair
By the window in this box we share

You're peeking through the door
While I'm emptying out my drawers
Hide my cell phone under blankets
My wallet and watch, my glasses and socks
Does the sight or smell of a suitcase
Make your ears bend, your hair stand on end?
Too old to be fooled again

It's easy to say and hard to do
To spend three weeks apart from you
Oh what I'd do, oh what I'd do to be there

First Friday night in June and I'm getting us ice cream
The only pair of sweatpants on Exchange Street
And all of these people might have someone
There's some that might not
There's some that are always searching
For a dream they woke up from
And struggle to recreate in their day to day

It's easy to say and hard to do
To spend a whole lifetime looking for you
Oh what I'd do, oh what I'd do

It's easy to say and hard to do
To spend a whole lifetime looking for you
Oh what I'd do, oh what I'd do to have you
