lyrics

RELATIVELY

Doesn't everybody see
The night come crashing down for me?
The clouds sit stationary
And the stars revolve?
Dizzy with perspective
Lacking in directive
My soul sits stationary and my thoughts evolve

Few and far between
Subtleties and perfumed magazines
Mindfulness aside, you're just a dreamer in the garden
And the clock flows through the turning tide

Gears churn slow
Water under bridges burns so
I turn my mind
To the other end and fly
Far from this cash and carry
Brings no hope to the sick canary
Dizzy destinations fleeting
Out of mind and out of reach

Pandora's box unfurled Medusa's plot in strange confusion
My dear, your dreams and vision but an optical illusion
By the way, the world, it doesn't hang upon your words
Far from the center of the infinite
You're ordinary, relatively, girl.

So embrace your imperfections
Flattening your God-given curls
You don't appease me
I, I can't be pleased
And in the midst of all of this to me
You're temporary, relatively

Gears churn slow
Water under bridges burns so
I turn my mind
To the other end and fly
Far from this cash and carry
Brings no hope to the sick canary
Dizzy destinations fleeting
Out of mind and out of reach

I summited the city
In the throes of love and life
Airborne in the clouds before you ask
Are you afraid of heights?
Hyperbolic niceties aside
I didn't touch the sky
But I'm some years apart
An six thousand feet closer tonight

And it's all downhill from here
But in the best of ways
You struck a chord
I can't compete with, I can't replicate
I'm not complete without
Within I feel a westward gravitation
And a want to begin with

A kiss
More than a mouth on my lips
A touch
More than pressure on my fingertips
A home
More than windows and a doorframe
A heart
That bleeds for you, it bleeds by any other name
And I-

I can live with distance if we aren't so far apart
In time and space and reason
Between melancholy healing hearts
The center of a garden
Where I lay down arms to thee
Two thousand miles away and closer
Closer, indelibly

When I'm back here in the garden
Should Armageddon befall
You are in my heart always
Next to me relatively
