There's a sunshine in my veins that's bleeding out
like a gutter in the summer of a drought
there's rumours that it's dying but I'm not sure it was alive
Can I keep you for myself until I'm sure?

There's a sun bleached vignette sat upon a sill
I can barely make it's memory out, oh well
A spider takes her home with her and settles on the breeze
While we tie ourselves to abstract Geographies

There's an apple in the attic of her eye
a stowaway of love that slowly dies
the best of times the worst of times, I find it hard to tell
A City's not a compass or a Well

There's ataxia in the patterns on the wall
I'm pasting up the corners but they'll fall
I'm sorry if your sentiment got list inside the fray
A smile is not a forecast for a day
