Track Name: different skylines
I left chicago
All the mistakes I ever made
I left them back there too

...or so I thought

Here in brooklyn
Winters aren't as cold
But the Midwest gray
Hangs heavy in me

From Chicago to New York
Track Name: timelessnessless
There are so many thoughts in my head
About what I need to do or should be doing
Some days, parylzed
I lay on my apartment floor
High strung but so low
Will I always be this way?

Time keeps shifting
Sometimes I can't keep up
I watch my body deteriorate

No one is timeless
Track Name: greyscale new year
January second
It's raining outside
I can hear it flicking
Off the car tires
On Bushwick Avenue

Check the time
am I ok to leave today?
Check the time
am I ok to go outside?

A quiet morning at the kitchen table in our studio apartment
The metal clicking of the heater turning on
The ticking of the turquoise clock
Goes on and on
Drink a second cup of coffee
My mug has an abstract image
Of the skyline I once knew so well

The buildings are so colorful
But the paint is starting to fade and chip away
Track Name: stay in
There are days I don't wanna see anyone
On those days I want to disappear

Traffic outside is quiet midday
So familiar with the sound of our heater
In January
The tick of the turquoise clock
Above the shelves of books
We read or will read

Take me back to the time
that we went to Vermont for a wedding
It was September then
The air was cool and crisp
The leaves were starting to change
And something started to change in me
