Crooked Picture

This song was created for Game of Bands round 20 : "Sad Songs"

Lyrics:

Crooked a picture hangs
atop narrow stairs and busted rail
It creaks for the years it's seen
Foot falls and memories
The white door on the left
Is left open just enough
As to not be forgotten
By the cool of the morning air

The absence sits heavy
Foreign and familiar
As the sun cuts through the blinds
Echoes can?t hold the warmth
Of the sun, of the sun.

Where concert gods still preside
Over the twisted sheets
Of an unmade bed
And dog-eared novels
Mark familiar places
Where Polaroids parse the time
Undisturbed but for
A younger stack of letters
Sent never to be read

The absence sits heavy
Foreign and familiar
As the sun cuts through the blinds
Echoes can?t hold the warmth
Of the sun, of the sun.
[Exit]
