about

the simple things that you say when you're saying goodnight

lyrics

last week we couldn't sleep at all
from thoughts of empty beds
in the room at the end of the hall

for three months we flinched at every call
it was a terrible summer
counting days until the start of the fall

but down by the river
lying beneath the trees
staring at the light
burning between the leaves
no one here can ever know our lives

in the isolette
you're so warm and slight

searching for quarters for a parking space
for 89 days we were visitors watching your face

and right now i just want to hold you tight
and say the simple things you say
when you're saying goodnight

but down by the river
lying beneath the trees
staring at the light
burning between the leaves
no one here can ever know our lives

we're waiting here both beside your bed
together but separate
as you sleep in your isolette
