The Little Things

The shoes by the door
More than we wear
The books by the bed
In the room that we share
Throw some clothes in a bag
Take just what you need
Take a good look around
Could be the last time you see

All these little things
That make up a life
Left for no one
In the flickering light

The crowds at the station
The long lines for gas
Nobody's moving
It happened so fast
A square on the board
A dot on a map
All the lives that we lived
We'll never get back

All the little things
That make up a life
Left for the ghosts
In the flickering light

The way the air moves
Through you like sparks
Lifted and left there
Alone in the dark
We pass from this life
Into the next
We follow each other
Into the west

Through improvised cities
On the outskirts and fields
We're trapped in due process
In the cogs and the wheels
My kingdom for passage
And a good night's sleep
An eight hour shift
And a peace we can keep

These little things
That make up a life
Left there for no one
Dying in the light

Before that, he was in a band called Paradise Vending. They weren't very popular either. He lives in KC and works as a dataviz developer and sometimes journalist. He also writes songs and hopes you like them. ... more
