Domestic Rain

I had a dream
that after a month of years of silence
you spoke to me
and brought a friend with you
His name was clearly printed
on a name tag I could clearly see
but I couldn't read.
You asked me how
I could build a wall around me now
that you've decided to let me in

So I went home
and I sat alone
under domestic rain.
that's where I dream
with eyes wide open.
It's hard to explain
exactly why
I feel my eyes
staring at you
in your mirror

It seems
like the world came crashing down
all around
so fast
It seemed like an eternity
We tried for optimism
when it wasn't there to be found
The world wasn't crashing
we were simply rising from the ground
and into the sun.

So I went home
and I sat alone
under domestic rain.
that's where I dream
with eyes wide open.
It's hard to explain
exactly why
I feel my eyes
staring at you
in your mirror

The cycle
is almost over
I look over my shoulder
The gap between then
and where I am seems so small
Now we're holding new hands
Making new marks in  the sand
That we once tracked through
eachother's worlds.
And I know that it'll be a while
Before I can sweep it in a pile
and blow it all out the door

So I went home
and I sat alone
under domestic rain.
that's where I dream
with eyes wide open.
It's hard to explain
exactly why
I feel my eyes
staring at you
in your mirror
