lyrics

I’m in your bed
with your shoulders turned to me
the moonlight pours out
milk white waves of sheets

it’s so quiet
I could lie here and watch you breathe
but I’m decided
I know exactly what to gather when I leave

my feet are bare
and the cold air gives me chills
I skim the floor
with my hands to find my shoes

I’ll leave a post-it
with your wife’s blue bedside pen
anticlimactic
but I can’t chance that you’ll pull me back again

let me exit gracefully

I’m on the road
when the sun ignites the leaves
I find a diner
and order a cup of tea

I’ve got an atlas
left my iPhone by your bed
so you can’t track this
the Pacific waves will wash you from my head

an old couple
sipping to my right
they ask me if
I’ve driven through the night

the only waitress
scrubs dishes with a wedding ring
I know it’s baseless
but I imagine when she’s here alone she sings

and she does it gracefully

I don’t think you’re a jerk
but what we’re doing doesn’t work

let me close the door gracefully
