I know you hold on to me for security
while I take in your cigarette fumes
grateful for the silence to take control

And you'll never accept that you're lonely
when I'm not there.

Conversations
without even talking
as we sit by the river bank
swishing our feet in the icy water.

I'll show you my world
In return for a chance to visit yours
To see what goes on in that
Head of yours.

Your soulful eyes tell me
Of adventures
And I want to join in too.

And as the world's plans backfire on itself
Again and again
We'll sit and contemplate
Our future
In the wake of the summer heat
And picture ourselves as adults.
