get tired

© 2016 harper blue music

how would i miss you
how would you know
i miss you like jesus would miss his
his own holy ghost
we didn’t go to london
i told you i don’t wanna go
but i don’t see you anymore
since the hospital
i know i’ve lost that fire
when my metaphors get tired
when i’m singing ’bout a window closing
meaning time you’ve got
driving through cascades and dodging
burning barricades that say
you know i’ll always love you
but the way has been cut off
now
but i miss you
and the things we used
to do
the plans i make still have you in them
and i know we’re through
i know i’ve lost that fire
when my metaphors get tired
when i’m quoting 3eb because my
brain can’t make a thought
driving through cascades and dodging
burning barricades that say
you know i’ll always love you
but the plane is taking off
now
i used to know what you want
i used to know it was me
but now i’m stuck in the background baby
and i don’t know what to think
and i don’t know what to think
but
i know i’ve lost that fire
when my metaphors get tired
when i say i was a mouse
who didn’t wanna make a sound
driving through cascades and dodging
burning barricades that say
you know i’ll always love you
but you gotta go around
now


This song invented itself over the last day and a half or so. I just wrapped up a fairly solid take on the lyrics, though they may still evolve a bit. Even so, I knocked out a quick acoustic demo on my phone just now, and I figured I’d share.
