about

love song for my best friend, henry ( smallwonder.bandcamp.com )

miss you

lyrics

i was born in a chinatown slum
with a vision that i followed and a story to become
and as i grew i felt i ran out of ink
i felt the parchment rice paper start to shrink and shrink

and i met a boy a little taller than me
and when i asked him about these questions
he said he saw plenty
reflected in his eyes
just as he said
was the daydream colored sunset
that i never had

but that sunset
never left your mindset
even through
all your coldest regrets
oh why do you try

because he taught me
more than any school could
always said if you can than you should
oh why do you try

and as my height came closer to his
as my hands started rubbing my crusted eyelids
all of a sudden all the pixels grew
all arithmetic i thought i knew

but it seems the more that life pushed us together
the more we felt finger trapped and tethered
like a million days shot through the sky
couldn't pull the night down from way up high

but this song is getting sentimental
turning loved ones ornamental
oh why do you try

because he taught me
more than any school could
always said if you can than you should
oh why do you try

all the smoking breaks
empty pizza plates
long walks long talks
when we stayed up late
all the times on the phone
leading to train rides home
all the fussin and the cussin
when we felt alone and said
"
you would always tell me
that i love you baby
separate we're changin'
but together we're amazin'
now as re-incarnate
we ain't even talkin'
you just keep me starin'
and i just keep walkin'
"

it's too late for me
(to come to terms with all i ever wanted
lesson learned but i just forgot)

i'm scared i'm starting to feel normal
i'm scared i'm starting to feel older
i'm scared i don't know what to do
sit in here till people think i'm cool
and i've found that time gets longer
as our eyes get as wide as our shoulders
why
and that's why
that i try
