//something unfinished here

let's drive until we hit the east coast
pack our bags in the car and go
vanish into the maritime fog
and memories of forever ago

let's drive until we hit the cold shores
of mist and sea and stone
let's abandon all we love
let's find a new place to call home

somewhere there's a house that's waiting for me
somewhere there's an unmade bed
wild roses and mint claw at the stoop
somewhere with sunsets gold and red

so let's drive till we hit the east coast
till we hit the east coast let's drive
the ghosts there know that our hearts aren't dead
the ghosts tell us that we're alive

There's a lovely atmosphere to this, such tangible yearning to belong.

This one feels like a song.

Really, I think a lot of your turns of phrase would work well as lyrics. Now if only I could write music...

i'm in a band. i write songs. i don't post them here, though. this one i considered turning into a song, but our main composer is punk-based and i really don't think this should be a punk song. i have patrick wolfy visions for it when it's done.
