i go out to walk at night
i’ve never been afraid
of seeing ghosts of future lives
i never have betrayed
it’s not like painting pictures
of stories you have read

it’s a lot like chasing horses
it’s a lot like holding hands
it’s a lot like recognition
for a face you had not planned
to appear

you go out to walk at night
in a place that’s in your dreams
burning candles guide your sight
a strength beneath the beams
it’s not like you have wanted
for anything but love

it’s a lot like glowing torches
it’s a lot like stinging sands
it’s a lot like premonitions
of a holy distant land
to appear

stand still for now
you can always tell a loved one
who has never loved at all
and now a story’s ended
i crawl

i can never walk at night
i always hear the sounds
of little children laughing like
they’ve figured living out
