Sharks and Stars

from by golden curtain



In a summer of storms, there are no lights in the harbor
it's you in the dark with the radio and what's left of your heart

The Captain's gone, the boat is on fire
and at the university
boys play guitars for
girls wearing dresses

The season's turned to static, the surf's gone to blades,
what you were going to say doesn't make any difference

the turn of the highway, the pull of the suburbs
in the rearview mirror, the broken back of the city

She gets in the car and they drive into the night
And that's how fast it takes to never see someone again

Your heart's gone in the valves, the waves are all breaking wrong
and your dreams are fevers of sharks and stars
