“we were brave and battling for everything we'll never do
in a way it's mattering more
in memory I see your face
with a softness owning you
we were dancing in the rays of sun
trace lines of cheek and neck
in a way i couldn't do
before that feeling set
make the eyes glow bright and fun
with a softness
only you realize its not the sun”
