Trying to flee that life

The Tallest Man On Earth,
There's No Leaving Now

1904 - The Tallest Man On Earth

"And you’re living with no light or direction
But damn precise and now you know
When the leaving is hard, but you go now
And you feel what you drag across the floor
Because something with these trails are just different
Since they shook the earth in 1904”

How terribly strange to be seventy 

Old friends, memory brushes the same years, silently sharing the same fears”

James Vincent McMorrow,
Early In The Morning

 If I Had a Boat -James Vincent McMorrow 

If I had a boat, I would sail to you;
hold you in my arms, ask you to be true.
Once I had a dream, it died long before.
Now, I’m pointed north, hoping for the shore.

Where Do My Bluebird Fly- The Tallest Man on Earth

"Oh, well I knew you shook the set-up baby, of all the leaves up in the ground
And I know our song is all but healthy as I see dry leaves fallin’ down, oh

With all this fever in my mind, I could drown in your kerosene eyes
Oh, you’re just a riddle in the sky
Oh, where do my bluebird fly?”

The Bad in Each Other- Feist

"But what and how
To find us now
When we’ve become two
Fluorescently blue
Down the neon river.
The sadness canoes
Either without or with her.”
