starry night

from by Keri Latimer

lyrics

faucet drips and i’m off dreaming
dishes with the crickets creaking
kitchen curtains rustle in the breeze

you lean in and while you whisper
springtime trickles down my neck
and you say leave the sharper knives to me

and i hold on and i hold tight

swishing of the wheat field wind has
my heart itching like the skin we
threw ourselves on broken stems
emergency trespassing

and i hold on and i hold tight
and i try to let go

headlights blaze when the stars fire up
you’re a million miles away
starry night a million ways to break my heart

your old car retired out back
where the gladioli sway
but when the wind
picks up dust
i hear it start

and i hold on and hold tight
