Just Leave Your Windows Open

By Salty Ships

This little slice of air right here
no baby, here
say it with me now as I repeat
this little slice of air right here
the space between my heart and your spine
where my skin is vulnerable and your vertebrae are strong
is exactly where IĀ end and you begin.

Fan the emptiness with your fingers
go on baby, here
I'll do it with you if it helps
fan the emptiness with your fingers
touch where our soul splits
so neatly into two
this is the atmosphere that binds us as one.

Take ahold of the invisible chain
yes baby, here
we can dangle along together
take ahold of the invisible chain
now pull with all you've got
don't you see
if you tug hard enough I will always feel and follow.

Now look at me
it's alright baby, here
now look at me
my eyes will lock onto yours too
we can sail these seperate journeys
take the time of centuries
and yet always remain terribly connected.

Let's slide the windows open
watch closely baby, here
let's slide the windows open
we can hold hands as we work
now isn't that lovely
all this open space between us where we can remain infinetely tethered.

    I can't put it as eloquently, yet I agree, word vomit insinuates that this lacks cohesion or direction, that everything is simply random happenstance, simply, a lyrical tangent. I don't see that here, I see honest emotion and an apparent rhythm as subtle as the wind is intangible. Much respect. Scholar
