time will tell

what about
the fire
did we build
our home
just to decay
watching sparrows
fly around
from the shade
time will tell

what about
desire
decisions made
just for today
hiding tears
fool around
losing head
touch the ground
stay awake
finally found
time will tell

in fact I gave my very best
keeping things apart
but the only simple thing I did instead
was loving you
with all my heart
like a lonely bird I’ve waited
all day long for your recall
singing winters humming song
while sitting on a rock
and time went by

what about you, liar?
didn’t I say
I’m just ok
with you now
it will work
anyhow
time will tell

I send my news
by wire
searching for a
quiet place
losing head
touch the ground
stay awake
finally found
time will tell
