I am facing every nightmare
Like tornadoes are hairdryers.
I made the majors, the majors made me.
In the future I am no longer afraid to make myself try.
Atlantic is a wading pool
For deep sea dreaming
I can appreciate a good underwater wreck like anybody else
But you don’t see me bragging bout what I returned.
Always room on the board for one more.
Can always get a little better.
Never really realized
I have a body of silly putty bricks, keep your thumbprint
On my skin
Til I stretch out.
Tight calves, deep breath
Hard heart, deep breath.
Zero is neither negative nor positive
So stand like your back can’t break
When it whirls round the form
Of what they call
(still trying to get back to the strange, all the stars call you home).
Some days Chicago looks so aquamarine
And I’m not afraid to cry
And I can say I’m in love
And I never knew myself so beautifully.
Recognize my eyelids are sunsets
And smile is a hearth
And I’m not leaving voicemails for who you used to be.
It’s almost as if I can move these concrete shoes.
Short sight, deep breath
That gut feeling, deep breath.
