Streetlamp Inspiration

Driving down a dark road tonight
put away the miles, put away the light
this old spirit inside isn’t doing alright
& the thought of you has become slight routine…
in our silent years in between

In case you’re wondering how good I’ve been
I still sit alone, sometimes, and play pretend
make believe this time I’ve found a friend
they’re the roughest things I’ve ever seen…
our silent years in between

Streetlamp inspiration
does anybody see
the full moon imitation
burning down on me

Milestones pass and I grow up
but always yesterday when I grew tough
a little more crude, a little washed-up
in the life and death of Sweet Sixteen
and all our silent years in between…

Whether they couldn’t recognize my face
or somehow forgot to save a place
the stars still burn in time and space
and so we can look but never intervene…
in our silent years in between

Streetlamp inspiration
does anybody see
the full moon imitation
burning down on me
