to the girl that lives on magnolia



i'm floating right now,
in the orbit cold
looking at your window pane.

and i'd give you a call
but i have no service at all
way up here in space.

i've been with stars
so long it seems
i'm not sure what to say.

i'm half elated
and half deflated
when you start to float my way.

what are you doing?
you grab onto my hand
floating up here all alone.

i'm scared you'll forget me
and the winter would kill me
if you ever were to go.

your smile is sad
like you already know
that a fear is a crippling thing.

but your smile reminds me
of what i left behind me
and i remember that i loved to sing.

i try to remember the words
to that song that we loved
but they all get stuck in my heart.

you'll remember, dear friend
and i'll stay till then
because up here it never gets dark.
