Compelled by nectar
The words come easier
The first one I can avoid with gritted teeth,
I can’t say no to the rest.
I follow in the footsteps of all the greats
The ones that are remembered with the best stories
It’s always so bitter after the first
But I’m honest.
Walked sorry miles
At the time I didn’t know
I didn’t know there’d be so few chances
It feels like tomorrow is infinite,
But really, someday never comes
There is purpose somewhere out there
Telling me of hope that’s somewhere far away
Where rain falls less.
I see you out there
You were always this enigma
Someone I wanted to know
Someone I needed to understand
But now I know.
This is who were are,
We could take pictures together
And you’d tell me finally all I ever wondered
All I ever wanted to heal for my father
All the answers he sought at the bottom of the bottle
All the ache he managed in silence
You’d tell me who we all are.
Give me a bed to lie in
So I can stop chasing.
