Far



I traveled far
to a place so distant seasons never changed at all i returned last night
to feel the first cool breeze of fall
as i lay back in my bed
 
i saw the end
shuffle gently into view
and then turn back again
so surprised at my reaction to this tired friend and what i thought he said
 
just close your eyes and breathe the night keep your vision for another light
for the many of whom you'll love
that go to find a way
 
it feels so late
though i pride myself on certainty
i hesitate
and it's strange in philadelphia
the city waits
for something new to find
 
i lose my sense
and the apathy that frightens me is so intense but i still can see the meaning
in the words you sent
"i've been here all the time."
 
so close your eyes and breathe the night keep your vision for another light
for the many of whom you'll love
that go to find a way
 
like when we watched waves last september and all the other ones had gone
you said you felt like you were losing it i said i've been lost for so long
 
i close my eyes and breathe the night
keep my vision, there are other lights
for the many of whom you'll love
that go to find a way
