lyrics

You didn't call, but I wouldn't write
I guess I didn’t count on you to play nice
I used to stand tall before you made me your nest
I hid from that part of me and swallowed the rest

Your fingerprints left stains all over my hairline
Your presence is enough to twist up my spine
Damage was done, with no one to blame
Because I never considered the sake of my name

So, I resign to the words I recite
To the single breath I’ll hold through the night
In hopes they subtract from the sum of my fears
and you won’t be here
in time, so I can give me a rest

Absence is bliss, leave the whole world outside
You fight my indifference from the curves of my mind
I try not to bite when I need a hand
Our fickle life knows none but collapsible plans

You test my reflex, though you know I’ll react
It’s all part of my magnificent imbalancing act
I’ve been waiting all night for the stars to align
I’m losing to the street lights by my own design

So, I resign to the words I recite
To the single breath I’ll hold through the night
In hopes they subtract from the sum of my fears
and you won’t be here
in time, so I can give me a rest

Brandon is highly regarded for his contributions to publications such as JET and Modern Falcon. He also attends regular glass-staining seminars. ... more
