December 2011


Love of mine, I'm walking home at the end of the day
what do I find but a cliche dark alleyway /
Urban canopy a silhouette against the starless sky
I just find myself bewildered with the “why” /
okay I lied, you ain't no love of mine /

All these miles that I've walked
it's been 2 months or so since we've talked /
A storm pops and flashes in the sleepy sky
I just find myself bewildered with the “why” /
I'm just outside the pathway so hard to find /

been living in isolation at my great-grandfather's house
but tomorrow I'm leaving Lubbock, I've got to get out /
I'll come back to you, that's all I ever do
I'm coming home to start real life /

“If there's no one beside you” I'm wandering into the dark
dimly lit beneath the near-full moon of your heart /
streetlight of hope, electrical rope
long wooden fences channel me out, childhood's end /

The storm is beautiful but you top it yet
I set an expectation that just can't be met /
shadows of December stretching under the empty sky
I'm just so bewildered with the “why” /
I tried but I just can't break the bind \

We Found in Each Other in the Dark was composed by Dallas Green for his 2011 album Little Hell

I write songs about the moments of my life that I deem necessary to remember. Pretty simple stuff.
