Leasing, Michigan

memories are like mistletoe
kiss them well and let them weep 
after all it's the subtle things 
we fail to keep
living like the poison seeps 
lay awake just to fall asleep
laughing like you meant it  
despair marks martyrs, 
no contest

painting my soul on the chapels 
of sixteen shadows 
it's the beauty we come to confess
drifting away 
on the late side of michigan 
holding on to a widow 
like you're forever missing her

i feel your shadow
i know your leaving 
it's getting closer
i know we're not suppose to 

memories don't respond to infatuation 
and melody's don't mock the sad 
tickles, trickle down like shame 
smiling like you're right where you belong

a moment here and a moment there
we were just a moment outside of home
thinking back like
time always leaves you alone
hiding in the shadows 
moving like there was no atmosphere 
vividly free falling 
no here-after calling 

you touch rivers
like the rush given
failed to deliver 
cursing labor 
like the child 
failed it's savior 

we were just moving along 
i hear thats all you can do 
holding on to the pain 
trying to make it last 
as long as you need it to 

i know your leaving
i feel your shadow 
it's getting closer
i know we're not suppose to
