about

I was thinking about my kids and this is what came out. Written long after I should have been in bed.

lyrics

Only the counting will keep me awake,
and the gathering darkness is too much to break,
so you're talking and talking and talking and I'm feeling lighter.

And the spectre of innocence is too much to take,
if you think much about it, you'll feel your heart break,
but there's a cadence of years to get through before this makes sense to me.

So.

Hold me and keep me and tell me I can stay forever,
or as long as I want to.
Kiss me and set me down lightly and try to stay close.
I wish it wasn't so dark in here. But I trust you completely.

But I won't forever.

It's the thing that you learn when you try and stay sweet,
that the roughest of corners are the hardest to beat
into shape.
And the ones you most want to.

And the simplest things in which you place trust
will turn out to be the ones crumbling to dust,
and I'm sorry for all of the things about which I'm powerless.

But.

I can promise eventually that you'll come back to me,
if I do this right,
and there's a very good chance that none of this will be your fault.
I'll take the blame as I gave you your name and I'm sorry for whatever you needed from me.
For whatever you needed from me.

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
