there were no pictures or signs on the wall
just a day when the oceans were blue
no warning that I can recall
I turned to you

statues of Mary litter the tracks
where we were headed there was no turning back
I held your hand as long as I could

I stumble sometimes when I walk through the door
searching for a life that was here before
watching it slip through the palm of my hand
all these words I finally understand

remember when we
would talk on the phone
discussing the day

you’d call me back
say it couldn’t wait
but I knew it could

we’d stumble sometimes when we walked through the door
dying to get you down on the floor
clothes disappear with a slight of the hand
all these words
all these words

maybe I’ve passed by the best of my world
foolish to think it was all for a girl
maybe I’ve stood with my arms on my chest
telling myself she’s not like the rest

I stumble sometimes when I walk through the door
searching for a life that was here before
watching it slip through the palm of my hands
all these words
all these words
all these words I finally understand
