I was holding onto handfuls of expectation then summer came down like a waterfall
and took you away.
I lost a war I didn’t know I was fighting. I guess happiness came at a price
I wasn’t willing to pay.
Now, I’m lost between memories ’cause I was in your arms just yesterday.
I wish I never remembered but I could never forget. Your voice echoes at the back of my head. If I can drive anywhere I’d drive to you ’cause nothing compares to winter because it smells like you.
Nights in sweaters,
our eyes are closed,
but I still see
the light radiating around me.
This is all I know.
This is what I hold onto.
This is why I don’t wash my bed sheets: because I don’t want to wash you away.
