lyrics

they say it only rains if you water your garden
you can’t wait and hope the job gets done

but i’ve got a houseplant inside so i water it and it still doesn’t rain.
the leaves bend over toward the glass like they’re craning for a better view
the action is out past the stoop and they can barely see it
and the sunlight is out past the stoop and they will never reach it

so the ambient light will have to do until the night returns
when you get home from work then lock the door lower the blinds
now the light comes from the inside and you don’t want to let it out

• the ripple ends with the window glass
the splash doesn’t make it through the door
the tree grows where no one will hear it fall. 
and the day always ends before i’m ready to fall asleep
and it starts before i’ve even woken up
and the seasons are measured in fundraising drives on WNYC

but the days are getting longer and the road is getting clearer
because i got a stronger prescription
but other than that not much has changed so i still check my email every half hour
to see if anything will
i know i’ll get something some day soon.  

but now i can’t read what i’ve written on my hand so i don’t know what to do
i had hoped that the act of writing was enough to make me remember
like writing vocabulary words over and over - drilling them into my head
but i didn’t write these words enough
and they slipped into the cracks in my skin
so when i get home i’ll just in my chair with the blinds lowered
when the light comes from the inside you don’t want to let it out.
