lyrics

stepped on a rusted nail with my shoe
it slipped between two big toes
i took it out to see my entire life inside the hole it made
i saw you underneath a fiery sky
the ground beneath you thirsting for rain
i was trapped inside a construction site
fortified by giant palm trees

and you passed me letters on the inside
full of treasures and insight
i'd like to have you close
i'm not about to lie
but i want the best for you
its not at my side
its not at my side

lifting myself on a barb wired fence
with cuts and blood of a reckless child
bring a cool damp cloth
for when i reach the other side
we'll hold it to the sun
and tiny beams of light will warm our skin
through the stains and love
we'll have found the perfect place to begin

and we'll pen our letters
on the outside
in the Himalayas and Bay of Bengal
and I'll be my best with you
when I'm scarred and new
maybe somewhere down the road
"someday" suits me fine

my dear distant love
i wanna pull down your hair
and fill these empty hands
with every ounce of you
