Clouds above the cemetery,
Can't even tell the time of day,
They give nothing away,
Reading names of people past,
They're so very close and
But who am I to say?
Trees obscure the borderlines,
There's big weeping willows,
Their branches weight them down.
Remember when we,
To float by the window?
The neighbors must have had a laugh
We love to put on a show.
For people who would try to deny
We'll show 'em the pictures.
The only thing that bothers me now
Is why remember it here?
Is it true,
As I walk along the beach
That nothing in the world can
Here's to you!
Let the growing of the trees
That everything is now behind you.
Ear against a mausoleum,
Eyes on a broken wristwatch hand
My feet still caked with sand.
Remembering when we
I feel like my heart is beating fast
I can't seem to relax
And people never used to smile
When posing for portraits
It must have been a different time.
No phony, elastic grin.
I feel like that's the real me.
Straight face and a blank stare.
Looking like I never win,
But I feel fine.
Twice in my life I've been sure that
A wall was the edge of the world
