I can’t read roadmaps,
But I know you read them like you’re reading a book.
I’ve been travelling across my arms
Chasing the image of a bird that moves much quicker than I.

Now I’m walking beside someone else’s feet,
Travelling up her arms instead of mine,
That’s where I spend most of my time.

I understand the scarf that clings to your neck,
As if it knows the danger of being alone.
Loneliness falls slowly and lingers long,
Descending on thoughts you wish were gone.

Now I’m not afraid of getting old,
I’m not counting the days,
I’m not wearing a watch on my arm.

We made it all the way to my front door
And fell asleep outside, your head on my shoulder.
In this town a rain soaked me to my skin
And I don’t think I’ll ever dry again.

You pretend you don’t know what to say,
I think you know,
But you’re just afraid.
