Window Plant

She stands in the window
Watering plants
The sun shines through our little home
But days come in flashes
And my memory’s broke
I can’t seem to focus now

I just want it to be still
Please just make it still

But nothing ever slows down
Rage on, rage on
Oh dear
And everyone keeps moving on
But stay here, stay here
My love

My mind is a mess
I’m losing control
I can’t organize my thoughts
But sometimes I manage
To be calm for awhile
Let things happen as they will

I just want it to be still
Please just make it still

She looks at the clock
And sits next to me
Tells me all about her day
Our bodies cast shadows
That blend into one
While the evening settles down

I just want it to be still
Please just make it still

But nothing ever slows down
Rage on, Rage on
Oh dear
And everyone keeps moving on
But stay here, stay here
My love
