feels like I'm drowning
in all this emptiness
I said I'd do it alone
pave the path to you
water my flowers
and fight my demons on the way
but all I can think about
is where you are
fuck, even who you are
pacing around in all this space
I'd like to fill it up with you
how many circles do I have left?
I'm running out of sheep to count
I know there's a few miles more
before I find the girl you're waiting on
I'm waiting on her too
remind myself to smell the roses
and put the hourglass in the attic
a watched pot never boils
but fuck, it's a lonely path to you
