where you want to write letters from
is somewhere sunny and pretty and warm
but what passes through your head
or passes for your heart
or reaches through the edges of your doubt
means nothing more than anything that you have ever
said out loud

i wanna write songs like monuments
like bench legs in dust
like when you see your ex lover on the back of a crowded bus
for your prologues and endings and future keep-goings
for all those true things that were never truly real
trust me when i say that pain is the best thing you could feel

these days are review mirrors that reveal a new side of your face
and when you're looking back, yeah you always hesitate
for the long walk after a hard talk and your heart's beating in your throat
and it's such a sign of life
you think you'll choke

so love your limits and your fears
because of everything about you, they won't always be here
to give you solace for your failures
and the things your never reached for
and leave you with a lingering sense of regret
for each and every one of them

and i'm not here to pretend
that i know who you are
or where you've been.
