lyrics

December, 1991

Morning sunlight shining through the blinds
Where you were sleeping.
I saw the morning sunlight burning white
Across your bodies.
Couldn’t find you through the smoke,
Because I was sleeping, honey,
And if you should find me now,
I’ll be trying to believe the things
That I was seeing.

Morning sunlight shining through the bars
Where I am sleeping,
My head pressing down some wrinkled poems
Where only I read them.
Couldn’t speak your final words--
I couldn’t find them, honey,
And if you should find me now,
I’ll be trying to believe the things
That I was saying.

Now the photograph I kept of us,
An ancient secret,
Pressed down to my breast with leather straps--
I feel them loosen.
Strung up on this old machine.
I couldn’t see you, honey,
And if you could see me now,
You’d be trying to believe the things
That you were seeing.
