Wrap me in a soft white blanket
Carry me as if I'm weightless
Build a place for me to hide and
Hold me in your arms when I'm asleep

We arrive with desert eyes
We read our lines through paper skin and
In the spring the chinese lanterns
Turn to red hearts dried inside a cage

Day after day
We fill the space
Forget and replace
Day after day

The books, the bricks
The past in glass
The paintings and the photographs
We walk a mile across the room
I'm holding you the way you once held me

Day after day
We rearrange
But nothing's the same
Day after day

Living in clover
Over and over

Day after day
We sit and wait
Wasting away
Day after day
