lyrics

do you remember
an interstate shelter
in the heart of December
when the wind was a bastard

the sun hung like a liar
like a hearth with no fire
like ash from a shovel
like tinsel from bramble

we were running from love
running from love,
before we got stuck
we were dumb out of luck
we were running from love

you were smoke on the air
that twirled into prayers
for a world lit by lightning
before the lightning grew blinding

and now I'm punched by the clocks
by the onramps and docks
till I slump into doorways
and I spill into subways

running from love
running from love,
before we got stuck
we were dumb out of luck
we were running from love

And when the morning light cuts in to carve up
all the dark you traded in
for something distant

I wonder if you’d bet your newfound failing freedom on
one chance to forget it,
or darling do you regret it?

between the dark and the light
between the noon and the night
between the ghost and the touch
I write your name in the dust

come back to me
like the surf off the sea
like the swift to a chimney
like the red to a flame tree

like you off the train
cross the tracks crossing Main
crossing Mission to Rome
cross the porch crossing home

running from love
running from love,
before we got stuck
we were dumb out of luck
we were running from love

before we got stuck
we were dumb out of luck
we were running from love
