Traveling alone memory stored painting the truth no one can afford bags on the bed burns on the floor aim the remote at the voices next door and the windmills turning darkened skies endless fields where beauty lies awake in a fog descending the stairs assembled a crowd enduring the glares questions are asked familiar unknown impressions that last reflecting the long ride home and the windmills turning darkened skies endless fields where beauty lies the sound of crickets slowing down getting colder wearing out a raving success the papers report expert address all in accord erupting applause its not loud enough strength a facade destroyed by the steady sound of windmills turning darkened skies endless fields where beauty lies brilliant stars fade daylight dies shadows casting muted cries

Mixing up your laundry Crash your carts at the produce aisle Barely catch the N train and again a knowing smile Spinning through his intervals Your yoga class aligns Pay to match a random heart Familiar face online Magnetic motion Pulling you closer Call it chance dismiss a glance You gravitate away Suspend your disbelief that there’s a greater force in play Love a novelty to graph infinity it grows The universe will finally burst Into your arms who knows Magnetic motion Pulling you closer You’re the Queen of Coincidence The spark igniting A sequence of incidents Events colliding The Queen of Coincidence Your fate it might be that maybe he’s the one You’re the Queen of Coincidence The spark igniting A sequence of incidents Events colliding The Queen of Coincidence Your fate it might be that maybe he’s the one Years have passed Faced fears at last A dream trip overseas Take a foreign language course Your guide book’s company Ready for the takeoff Empty seat waits at your side Flight delayed for standbys And he’s standing first in line Magnetic motion Pulling you closer You’re the Queen of Coincidence The spark igniting A sequence of incidents Events colliding The Queen of Coincidence Your fate it might be You’re the Queen of Coincidence The spark igniting A sequence of incidents Events colliding The Queen of Coincidence Your fate it might be that maybe he’s the one that maybe he’s the one that maybe he’s the one

Big Books 02:42
Falling in silence Hearing the past The risks of revealing A heartbreak unmasked Careful expression Steady on course Eloquent poet Erasing a verse Graceful his movement Commanding in voice Beautiful creature At peace with his choice Big books and ideas A new world to see His ear so tuned in To all things but me Melting in gazes A mans only flaw Writing a mystery With no denouement Stretching my limits I keep getting burned Hopes always drowning In lessons unlearned Been through a lifetime In each moment I cage Holding my breath for A one word exchange Big books and ideas A new world to see His ear so tuned in To all things but me Listening and learning I'm trying to catch up The muse he imagines I'm not matching up A student of sages You'd think he could see? His soul so enlightened But how can it be? With his big books and ideas Who can't love him back like me
