lyrics

Just a few minutes after
taking them, I realized
hundreds of buzzing flies
were all over me

I looked up and there you were
reading
You were on vacation
vacation means leave
means obliterate all prior things

Here, why don’t I try
why don’t I try to make you mine
why – is a lack of imagination
the crime?
why don’t I try
why don’t I try to make you mine
why don’t I back you up against this
moment

So when you finally go
when you choose to go
I resume my little lower road
and nobody needs to know
will know that I ever meant
to leave my
little lower road

I watch the bird feeder
out back in my parents’ yard
the weight of that bluejay
the bully steals it all

And what must happen in your mind
when you create those silences—
Nevermind, I don’t want to see
I know it’s got nothing
to do with me.

Here, why don’t I try
why don’t I try to move aside?
I’m still soft
I’m still in my prime
Why don’t I try
Why don’t I try to move aside
I’m still soft
it’s still my time

And when you finally go
when you choose to go
I resume my
little lower road
Nobody needs to know
will know that I was only
holding your place on this, your
little lower road

Your little lower road
