When the nights are long,
Listen to a song.
You can say hello darkness my old friend, and ask to go somewhere only we know, or admit that you’ve been waiting, and admit that sometimes your heart beats so loud you can’t even hear the beat.
You could get out of bed and be dancing on your own, you might know you’re beautiful just the way you are. Your doubt could suddenly go away somehow, even if you die everyday waiting for… something. Because every hour has come to this, one step closer. When you realize your eyes still smile from your cheeks and your heart could still fall in love in mysterious ways.
Tonight I’m thinking out loud. And I want to know that even though it’s based on your smile and I’m betting all of this might be over soon, please take what’s left of this heart and use only what you really need.
I can tell that I need to let it fade. So why don’t you be you, and I’ll be me and we’ll all be ok. Someday.
Because even though you had your maps drawn, and every road they led you down felt so wrong. You’ll be ok. Even though you’re scared, you’re stronger than you know.
So let something wild call you home.
Remember that the sun will come out tomorrow. All of this is one long hallelujah, and even though your faith is strong, you needed proof.
And you will find it.
Because baby I been here before, I used to live alone before I knew you.
All of you who make this trauma beautiful.
You keep my post traumatic bearable.
So fill your head with the ocean, fill your head with the sea, and dream of sailing with me.
I’ll pull you closer to my chest. Because I knew I loved you then, though you’ll never know.
Just say you won’t let go.
I am not the only traveler, who has not repaid his debt. I’ve been searching for a trail to follow, again. So then I can tell myself what the hell I’m supposed to do.
Take me back.
And meet me in tomorrow.
Where the sun will come out, and you can betcha bottom dollar that we’ll be ok.
Because I’ve had that dream a thousand times. A thousand times. I’ve had that dream a thousand times. My eyes are red, the streets are grey… but…
We will be ok. We will.
Just stay. One more day. Then another.
