The Sailing Song

from Two Songs, Arizona by Grande Canyon



It shouldn’t be this way.
Another complicated conversation
backdropped by the waves. By the way,
it gets better every day
I didn't expect you to check up on me
I appreciate it, okay?

It shouldn’t be this way.
The mainsail crashing down on my face
out there on the bay. By the way
it was nice of you to say
That there's nothing wrong with feeling like this
I appreciate it, okay?

I pulled up the sail.
It got stuck halfway.

Living in my head is no way to get better.
I do nothing now. We used to do nothing together, and it
feels like such a chore being just okay at most.
We slept under the stars, and drove back toward the coast.

Everybody went away.
I’ll get used to not staying up late,
no barbecue a few doors away.
But I'm gonna miss the way
that you picked me up to go get ramen.
I appreciate it, okay?
