Daughter - Shallows
in the shallows
watching stars collide
You always have fun on set. You’re always going to have a common bond. There’s always going to be music you can relate to – growing up my biggest bands were SUM 41 and Blink 182 – so there’s an admission for you. Working with people of a similar age, you can connect with that.
You were the sun and the moon and the band-aids in my glove compartment and I never tore my skin so much until I told myself to fall for you.
You were bottles of wine and cigarette ash. You said my name like a question. I said yours like the answer.
I looked into your wandering eyes, told your scattered mind the things I did at 4 in the morning and wished the world would understand you the way that I tried to.
I woke up longing to kiss you. I went to bed missing the way your hands felt when you used to want me.
You must have been a dream. I haven’t slept since you left.
