The filaments are cold and grey, it’s hours after dark
I sift through embers from the day, looking for a spark
but as they flicker, I can see how far we are apart
you’re in view but out of sight

you sent me postcards from Detroit and Montreal
you told me how the time passed by your window down the hall
sometimes I wonder if you care for me at all
or if you love someone else

the distance is by days and not by miles
I cannot find the ways to find the time I need to find

I signed my name beneath the text, I sent it stamped and sealed
our conversations hung there in the air like Calderian mobiles
and for a second I thought love was something skybound, light and real
but now I’m sinking in the ground

sometimes I wonder if I’m chasing vacant sounds
if no love existed to be lost, then how could it be found?
but since I’ve got this hole I guess I’ll keep on digging down
until I find your love
