lyrics

There’s a woman holding a photograph.
On the table is broken glass and a frame.
All the faces are smiling back at her
in a morning much too cold for fall.
In that still moment
is when she realized
why no one hangs bad memories on the wall.

A younger man is waiting patiently
for an elevator to take him all the way.
There is someone riding next to him
and he sees them every single day.
All the buttons light up like slot machines
as the ground moves further away.
As the doors open on the sixteenth floor
the simplest thing is impossible to say.

On a Greyhound bus a baby’s crying,
and it’s all she knows how to do.
She’ll grow old, learn all kinds of words,
like loneliness, love, and leave.
All the words in this whole world
can’t explain the things that bring us to our knees.
Oh, and crying just seems easier to me.
Crying just seems easier to me.
