lyrics

No one had loved me with an email
Until I read the one you wrote about a hundred years ago
It blew my fingers off the keyboard
It blew the buttons off my clothes

Time out of touch can heal a headwound
Time leaves us loners, one and all
I grew a beard a mile long trying to sort out what to say
Until the love had gone away

So weird to feel it when I don’t know if someone’s on the other side
Like how you can’t see out of a glass house with all of the lights on in the night
And how you won’t know the moment that you’re gonna die until it’s time
Don’t know if someone’s on the other side

A long-ass time since all the emails stopped
They still glow somewhere on my drive
I wonder: are you still alive?
I open one
I kiss the ground
I thank the lord
They read so much less sweetly than before

Just when I thought I’d mastered loneliness
I get a midnight text from you
Can someone tell me what to do?
I can’t ignore it, can’t reply
My eyes have adjusted to the light

I wanna write you but I don’t know if someone’s on the other side
Like how you can’t see out of a glass house with all of the lights on in the night
And how you won’t know the moment that you’re gonna die until it’s time
Don’t know if someone’s on the other side

Don’t know if someone’s on the other side
Whoa, no you can’t
Can’t see out of a glass house with all of the lights on in the night
And how you won’t know the moment that you’re gonna die until it’s time
Can’t see out of a glass house in the night
