about

for an old and dear friend. reminiscing about when the times we both didn't feel like real people. a feeling i think is more common than i first thought.

lyrics

I guess this is where I am now.
I guess i’ve got so much more to go
Like that horrible ugly cliche that life’s a journey or whatever else they moan.
I mean, I eat a lot better now and go on midnights walks but is that growth?
My body is young i can’t complain but the voice in my head goes

I wonder where i will be when
happiness finds me will i
Be holding someone’s hand at church
or wiping a babies face clean of dirt
I wonder where i will be when
I feel like a real human being will i
be closing coffins or on my way to see my kids just like every weekend?

More like every other weekend…

And I remember the late nights with james when we laughed how we’d never see our 18th.
Like a weird kind of cosmic conspiracy would cause some car to chase down our small feet.

And whatever he’s doing now,

I wonder where i will be when happiness finds him will he
be holding someone’s hand at church or
Wiping a babies face clean of dirt or
I wonder where i will be when
He starts to feel like a real human being will
I be closing coffins or on my way to see my kids just like every weekend..?

I wonder where i will be when happiness finds me will i
be holding someones hand at church or
wiping a babies face clean of dirt or
I wonder where i will be when
I start to feel a real human being
will i be closing coffins or on my way to see my kids just like every weekend.
