1. You Live Alone

From the recording Apophonia


You live alone
Above the bay
That overlooks the hours they throw away
The temperamental touch or love in waves.
Another year to save.

I've given up
Where you have not
The jutting out of time to jumping off
A conversation that precedes a loss
The surprise of living when odds are low
I hope it never shows
I hope it never shows

I'm here again
To haunt the view
A wish that only lasts a day or two
Becomes the figure looming over you
The edge of an ending
To live alone
To live alone
