I like that this amazing show is at a cool 2 in the afternoon.
I can only love those dark hills
because I live in the day.
I can only see the mountain
because I live in town.
I only (claim to) love night
because I have only smelled it.
Actually living in the night means not talking about it.
I can only say 'no flashlight'
because once I accidentally forgot it.
Actually living in the night means actually walking
in the dark, means
to find caves in song.
