about

i wrote this in austin about being lost, missing friends from the east coast, and a girl i fell in love with when i lived in spain.

you learn a lot in your 20s watching all the people in your life slowly splinter away from you.

which isn’t to say i feel like i’ve “lost” a lot of friends. it’s just different now that we all have busy lives and new friends and new cities and talk sporadically.

there’s never enough time to keep in touch. the gaps in between talking and seeing people widen. when you do see them, you never really know when you’ll see them again. it’s a fact of life and you get used to it.

but i guess my hope is that even if we never find the time to catch up with people, they still know that they’re important to us and the times we had mean a lot more when life seems busy, lost, isolating and all over the place.

lyrics

I’ve been lost in the clouds
Grounded in my fucked up private shroud
Scurry through the gaps in broken years
I am disappeared

Don’t care about much
And I’d rather walk alone than walk with a crutch
Mostly I fall right before my feet
Not quite discreet

But I always have a lighter
And a pick in my back pocket
And I always have an excuse to get drunk
So if these days all blur together
Know that I’ll love you forever
Even if I never find the time to tell you

A man of many words
Sometimes I still don’t want to be heard
This world is filled with vacuous white noise
Yet I’m still employed

I got friends in the east
In a land of quaint suburban bullshit peace
I miss and love them every goddamn day
But I can’t complain

Cause I can always find a message
On the mirror in the men’s room
That makes me question life’s unspoken truths
So if these days all blur together
Know that I’ll love you forever
Even if I never find the time to tell you

I don’t know what brings me down
I don’t know what keeps me up

And when we were in Spain
So many frat guys, I smoked too much, life was insane
Always had you as my slab of solid earth
You showed me what I’m worth

And I’ve seen the sun rise
In dreams about the Midwest, I wonder why
Home is just a concept I can’t grasp
Lost in the past

And I always have a reason
For something to believe in
Yet I never have the heart
To follow through
So if these days all blur together
Know that I’ll love you forever
Even if I never find the time to tell you

And I always have a lighter
And a pick in my back pocket
And I always have an excuse to get drunk
So if these days all blur together
Know that I’ll love you forever
Even if I never find the time to tell you
