I think that things might be okay
If we just spend some time away
I know you’re tired
It’s cold outside
And sometimes I can’t help but cry
But I love you so much
I think we should try

I think that things will be okay
If we just give it a day
I’ll still be here
When you’re ready
I will hold you safe and steady

In your mind you weigh me down
But when I’m with you I am a cloud
I’ll put away the bridal gown
And give you room to think aloud

The world is scary
Dark and vast
And maybe we were moving fast
Accelerationism is enticing
But not when you are sacrificing
Smaller moments more important

In your bedroom getting high
Walking on waves and swimming in the sky
The comfort of the dark with you
The smell of your skin made me feel new

I will watch you shave your head
And I will fix the sheets on your bed
And we will watch strange foreign movies
While I pray that you choose not lose me

There is so much more
than What i can say
in stupid songs
I write while you’re away
There is nothing I could sing
To explain to you
Ethan Gathy
How much I love you
