lyrics

The muted applause of rain
Sleeves wrapped like licorice on the back seat of a train
Splintered driftwood half moons on my tongue
And other things
The backs of leaves
Should have warned us from
Like laying down in piles
And laughing all along

Jackets sewn like an American Quilt
Jackets sewn like an American Quilt
In a smile the patience of sea salt
smoothing the shards of a bottle
Reminding us that we’re here
Reminding us that we never left
Reminding us that we’re on our way home

We made sand from a shaker
Previously lent to the beach by us
We were palm brooms finally learning to stomach their salt
That’s when she said there are so many things I would thrown in the ocean when I was younger but
Underneath couch cushions seems a less obvious good bye
I agreed and continued to build her an ash tray in the sand

The muted applause of rain
Sleeves wrapped like licorice on the back seat of a train
