That's What I Saw First

We were in love and escaped to Spain

We continued to pay our taxes

Because that's how we were

Through complicated relays, so our location would remain safe

A secret

We were different

I had all these ideas and you had all these ideas

When I think of you now, I think of your shoulders and maybe you looking back

I remember cool, clear water by the glassful after the sun

I remember the ocean

I don't remember how it ended or I don't let myself

We had new names, distances travelled, hidden ailments

There were things to be done

When you make a path, you make it to be walked

When you make a road, there is much more making

When you write a letter, it says, I forgive you

You'll have a better hand next time

When I see you next, I pray I'm taller
