lyrics

Summer elegy

When you were a child, you were told life is everywhere.
Then you realized that it’s far from anywhere.
We raced through the city lights trying to make sense of the burning night.
You leapt with your words; you wore them like scars,
Fresh from the battleground.

It seems so long ago, and it seems like yesterday.
One was dazed and quiet, stuck in the far-away.
One laughed in the face of the moment, defiance was all he had.
With fearless abandon, in selfless destruction,
In love with almost everyone.

I didn’t know what it meant to be brutally honest,
I wish I could tell you I know now.
I didn’t understand why all those summers meant suffering,
Blissfully sad I was fading
But I had a friend who could pinpoint the seasons,
His words were like jewels, like bittersweet hope.
His heart was connected to all the good fortunes,
To all that surrounded us, to all that encroached.

I have a friend who can pinpoint the seasons,
He was always away, now he’s always around.
He said what he meant and he meant what he said
When he sang of the fear and he sang of the love.
His poems won’t die the slow death of cripples,
They’ll keep sliding through summers
Like lost children who don’t want to be found.
