In This Shirt

I am lost
In our rainbow
Now our rainbow
Has gone

Overcast,
By your shadow
As our worlds move on

But in this shirt,
I can be you.
To be near you
For awhile.

But in this shirt,
I can be you.
To be near you
For awhile.

There's a crane
Knocking down
All those things
That we were.

I awake
In the night
To hear the engines purr.

There's a pain
It does ripple
Through my frame
Makes me lame.

There's a thorn
In my side.
It's the shame, it's the pride
Of you and me -- ever changing.

Moving on now.
Moving fast.

And his touch
Must be wanted.
Must become
Through your ask.

But I need,
Jake, to tell you,
That I love you -- it never rests.

And I've bled
Every day now
For a year,
For a year.

I did send
You a note
On the wind
For to read

Our names,
There together,
Must have fallen,
Like a seed.

To the depths
Of the soil
Buried deep
In the ground

On the wind
I could hear you
Call my name
Held the sounds.

I am lost.

I am lost
In our rainbow
Now our rainbow
Has gone

I am lost
In our rainbow
Now our rainbow
Has gone

I am lost.

I am lost.

I am lost.
