you came to me on a cool march night like any other
you said your piece then i watched you drive away
said your goodbye
sorry that i couldn’t save you
you came to me
didn’t hear what you meant to say

bathed in exhaust
closed your eyes and went to sleep
innocence lost
never could you find your way north of sixteen

your laugh for me was just a mask to hide the maelstrom
you said your piece
i didn’t see your secret pain
said your goodbye
always thought i should have saved you
your laugh for me wasn’t quite what you meant to say

you were sixteen the last time that i ever saw you
you were serene cold upon your plush repose


from Echo in the Crevices, released July 1, 2017
