my feet aren't in front of me, they're trailing behind with road signs and stop lights; mosaic and bright i always cringe the first time a lazy day casualty, armed with nothing up my sleeve you were always there to tug my coat but i was never brave we stopped moving forward, we're just walking sideways let's make a tv series they'll never show we only get one pilot episode a crazy cast of characters, filling sets with inside jokes we'll make ourselves laugh till we can't breathe i don't want to have anywhere to be i just want to stand still.
2.
carried yourself like a crooked portrait on it's way to the black market but who's gonna pay for you? acted like i didn't notice, i stayed quiet and i kept my distance but i saw every move i think that dress weighs you down like an anchor you tie to yourself and i'm not surprised what hour is this? you're like a worried mother pacing and waiting for a call but you write the bad news pictured you as amelia earhart flying till you disappear make them all search for you i think that dress weighs you down like an anchor you tie to yourself and i'm not surprised it's always something with you.

the windshield's a movie screen for the scene to pass thru though i stare straight ahead, i don't see much of anything i'm just watching from a safe distance speed down, slow up i lose control hit the ground, not a sound at all my dreams keep killing me but i'm just watching from a safe distance this isn't happening.

i'll make a promise to myself that i won't be too scared but i never keep promises i make to myself your ghost is nothing like you, it's so much older you're not the spitting image of anything anymore you're just a blurry photograph in a paranormal magazine your ghost is nothing like you, it's so much older.

if you could be my safety net and always be there to catch anytime i miss a beat and the ground slips away from my feet i could use an extra set of eyes watch where i walk so they'll be no surprise where the roots keep pushing up the sidewalk.
7.
we start the new year 50 points behind i need a come back and the things i should have found by now i'll wait till i find it somehow i want to fall in love the way movies say it will happen to kiss on a bridge with lightning framing the scene your head on my shoulder whispering something to me.

you show up late, an hour or two there's no excuse that they won't see through so you punish them while smiling to keep the make up from running down your chin you just need to get through the night one step at a time then you wake up in the middle of the night you can't get back to the dream you had so you picture it in your head but it's not enough to get back you just need to get through the night one step at a time.
9.
i'm not running away, i'm just hiding my face out of the way and nestled tight you'll never notice if i do it right add it up year after year so many thoughts that you'll never hear it's what i wanted more than anything you're what i wanted more than anything.
10.
all the words that you can't avoid linger with you over your shoulders and at night you take them with you safe and sound under the covers if you could please leave the light on when you go count the cracks in the ceiling from here i see about a thousand you will notice, soon you'll notice and i'll think of something to say if i just open my mouth.
