but we forget the sprinklers
until we are on the side of the freeway by a broken down car
and the distinct smell of (nighttime) is pulling back
everything, everything, you remember - remember

black city and multicolored lights scattered over lives
which are screaming to be saved and whispering for redemption
and she says, redeem me. redeem me.

O to be with you again
to take a ride and just feel my life
rising up and away into purple skies
until i am lost while finding my way to him
my swimsuit was polka-dotted

but i had forgotten the sprinklers
