lyrics

I’ll be the only one chasing those sunsets,
listening for the sun-
It’s hollow grace plunging to the ground!
I’ll be the only one come sundown.

I watch the clouds, all night, drift by on your ceiling by lamplight-
Which window does the sun sneak in by morning?
I sneak out the door,
I’m just shy of morning-

Can you hear me talk in my sleep?
I dream of a sea of trains, in waves, coming and going-
I want to take the plunge, but I’m paralyzed on the platform-
I can’t swim, so I talk myself out of it all night.

Can I know the inside joke?
If I knew the punch line it might not hit me so hard-
Show me the door
in-
Nothing leaves this room till I walk myself out
alone now
sun down

Which window does the sun sneak in by morning?
I sneak out the door,
I’m just shy of morning-

(I want to take the plunge)
