You called me your brother
What happened to you
When the sun was falling down my throat
Shadow everything in view

Crawl into my sheets
Cry on my pillowcase
Make me love your sorrow in my dreams
They always keep me awake

Dawn hovers a bird
Dangles a worm
Lessons hang off my lips
Wish they were never born

The names I give us
make stuffing for the bed
their sounds build us secure
feathers fly out of my head

Please say you're sorry
So that I believe
Make me love your sorrow in my dreams
and I won’t have to leave

When you feel guilt
Keep it from me
Run excuses through the drain
Rush to the sea
