Backlit

I used to see you drive your car down the hill,
headed off to a job.
I would meet you out with your girl at night.
We would go for a walk.

It doesn’t seem too long ago,
but I can’t hold the thought.
The drawing you did is a cue.
I don’t know what to miss.

Silhouette I hadn’t seen for a while -
but I knew it was you.
Streetlights shined back and I stepped inside,
and watched you moved through the room.

I stood beside you, mistook to be brothers, and how,
we had spent some long nights.
Now it’s not clear what distance has given us.
For that, I want to try.

We’re not the type to lose everything that we wanted to say.
So buy us some time where we can sit down, and remember the days.

There were so many old friends.
I’m not sure how I did.
The skyline can beckon so long.
Problems hold fast and strong.

Silhouette I hadn’t seen for a while -
but I knew it was you.
Streetlights shined back and I stepped inside.
You were the room.

I’m aware of the danger of contrast, so I try to bear it in mind.
