Slow Embrace (When Dylan Dies)
Can we step outside, this party's stifling It's all gold dust and feathers When all I want is a table with you, Unhurried and together That's what I said then, and little's changed I don't despise the life we know These are the days of little things In hiddenness, cedars grow Because only low places Fill with water when it rains and I've never seen the lowlight lie unlovely on the plains But we miss it when we move at such a brutal pace I can burn down a thousand miles everyday in my brain It's a slow embrace That gets it all anyway But I'm just trying to reach what my babies need I'm not getting any taller I know that every hair is numbered Mine's been thinning and my days aren't getting longer But only low places Fill with water when it rains And leaning on these promises Feels like learning to wait But we miss it when we move at such a brutal pace I can burn down a thousand miles everyday in my brain It's a slow embrace That gets it all anyway If we ever move back East again We might be stuck on 95 Half-listening to XPN's pledge campaign When Dylan dies And as it gets dark outside, they'll play the back catalog And make their remarks on his 'born-again phase' We'll do our best Dylanesque impressions just for the laugh But if they play 'Pressing On' I'll get quiet and pray Because somewhere by the Susquehanna I won't wanna stomach more delays I'll be looking out for the next exit Now we're down to a single lane Do you ever feel it too? That everyone we knew in college got accomplished but I only wanted you, we only wanted kids, now all we got is In a slow embrace That gets it all anyway Can we step outside This car is stifling Besides, we gotta feed our daughters We'll climb back in when things start to move Unhurried and together
