lyrics

There are shorter distances, sure,
from Porter Square to New York.
There are shorter distances, sure.
That’s not what distance is for.

There are subtle differences, sure,
between the queen and her court.
There are subtle differences, sure.
She took one look at the door and said
“That’s fine but it’s still mine to ignore.
That’s fine but there’s still time to explore.”

And I know her heart as solid and
she knows just where her head is.
She’s all of concrete but she’s
clouds around the edges.

There are wider irises now—
wide as the sky to the ground.
There are wider irises now.
Whenever she comes around they say
“She’s great but she won’t stay settled down.
She’s great but she still waits to be found.”

And I know her heart as solid and
she knows just where her head is.
She’s all of concrete but she’s
clouds around the edges.

There are
shorter distances,
subtle differences,
wider irises…

I’ve grown tired of this now.
I’m like a ship run around.
So tired of this now.
Forever feeling through clouds
for some trace of her,
some place she’s aloud.
She’s there but she’s
all air to me now.

And I know her heart as solid and
she knows just where her head is.
She’s all of concrete but she’s
clouds around the edges.
