old photographs

from by rachele eve



your tattooed back
my tattooed neck
we invite the gods on our skin
then threw faith into the wind

your skin had saved me
but your skin now kills me
and I carry this weight
oh I carry an ache

we woke to rain many a summer day
we walked through snow many a winter's eve
singing songs to our friends
that is how our story ends


but we were beautiful, dutiful, beauty in pictures
a beautiful pair in thought
I'm on my own way now
I'm alone in the saddest way, I'm alone in the first place

there will be a man there, there'll be a gift
locked in the pavement
I'll dig my way in
so alive in my own skin,but still weak in the threading

don't know where I'm going
don't know what I will see
don't know who I'll meet
don't know who I'll be

I see old photographs
these old photographs are haunting me
these old photograph sing and speak of the places I've been
and the time that I've spent with you,
the people that we met and the person I became because of you

because of you
