I saw a couple
at the station,
they were trying to say goodbye.
They reminded me
of my family
in the mornings at Christmas time.

But no matter how hard they pressed themselves together
they still remained separate and untethered,
she was asking "is this the closest we can get?
do you know what I mean...have you ever known what I meant?"
he said "Baby, you know white light, it's always hidden,
and everyone's just like a prism..
even if it's never said out loud,
you know it's true."

And I was sitting across
from a man on the train,
as I listened to a song, I felt alone.
Someone was singing to me
about the futility
of a synonym inside a snow globe.

And he looked up at me over his glasses,
I'd never been so sure of kindness,
he said "do you wanna know what I found out?
Even though it's always a translation,
we're reading from the exact same page, and
it's a crazy thought but you know it's true."

So I make my way
down my street,
I swear it was a path I used to dread.
and all the people I used
to try and pass by, unseen,
now they kiss me on my forehead.

And the corner shop's front sign is dying,
so for one last night it is wise and winking,
with a glorious, untroubled casino smile.
I walked on through it's yawning doors
and threw my thesaurus on the floor,
saying "wherever we are going, I'm coming along!"
And I ran out into the snowflakes laughing,
both to myself and everyone.
