1. were alone
when we were alone

when we were alone,
you were my metronome,

When we were alone,
and ticking seconds could drone,

2. Paintings and Movies
And paintings and movies, eventually, have to decide
All the things they vacuum, what they have to bleed, and they brush aside
Come to be distraction, limping harmony, knowing it too well
And never decide, and leave it from me, don’t decide at all

Knowing that we were alone
And he wants to be a perfect cylinder

And he wants to be

3. Evergreen

4. Indefinitely / Tattoo Collage
It comes back to him, incomparably
The knowledge he’ll be, indefinitely

So like a rag, each second alone
He was in love, froze to the bone

With idols to see, and looking like stone
These images free are arrows we’ve thrown

And tie it all in, or write it all down
One day we will all forget how to frown

Or it expressed what he couldn’t quite say
Now it taunts like nighttimes we felt
When he’s romantic and loose like the day
Shaving endless ties from your belt


In this grown world, those out of tune songs,
Those full of gestures, tattoo collage
And wood-chaired plays, parading their gall
The only thing we say that we love

And want to hold and want to be held
There’s orange light that shines up the walls
And if there’s nothing more to be ours
I don’t know how I’ll think all alone

They tell you how to sit on a stone
Choose bad or less, you’re yes or you’re no
I’d run forever, long as a goal
And love you more, they leave me alone

And when you’re finally out on your own
No less a child than ever you’ve known
Take off your shoes and write me a poem
And love me like some day we’re alone

Reflecting hard to look over the sand
Wonder how often memories are wrong
Explaining music, hot on the seams
And love you more when we were alone
