Halloween Alaska

The Four Corners

Halloween Alaska
by the time i get to arizona
you'll be falling from my grace
evergreens will lie about the season
as the daylight gives a chase
i would buy the planetarium
so no stars would fall
a sunset lost on me
is not your loss
cuz your heart beats

by the time you get the invitation
i'll be spoiling the surprise
talking loud about forever
as the desert fingers rise
can you hear the wheel sigh?
can winter lovers justify
this fogged up winter green
and every breath held in between?

leaving home
but being careful
not to leave too much behind
lighting out despite our saddest faces
we can be in four places at a time

can you tell i've lost my intuition?
like i need it anymore
six bits for facts
and plastic bubbles
i have never felt so sure
bless the road side
i'll keep you untied
so says the parking brake
the thing you miss is no mistake

leaving home but being careful
not to leave too much behind
lighting out to find our finest graces
we can be in four places at a time.

i had a plan
i had sense enough
i counted it like promises to myself
after centuries of bad luck and open air
i found the one to keep
i found the one to keep
i found the one to keep
i found the one to keep
i found the one to keep
found the one to keep
found the one to keep
