Hiding Lyrics

By Modern Baseball

[Verse 1: Jake Ewald]
Take the train to Frankford, I won’t answer when they call
I guess that’s just my gift to myself
Drank a lot and danced to The Cure,
 holding on for dear life
To the frayed edge of a feeling we misplaced years ago
And knowing we should really get back home

[Verse 2: Jake Ewald]
Made mistakes; the plants died young, like all good things
But I wish my small self had known how much water to use

Still some nights I find the ideas that bring me rest
Are the ones that used to prod and pester and keep me up
Swinging open doors I swore I’d shut

[Chorus 1: Jake Ewald]
Pouring pewter
Amassing coins to displace debt to you
My straight-line shooter
Let me learn here, I am in pursuit
Of all I can undo

[Verse 3: Jake Ewald]
Entertain the cancer; we all answer upwards either way
The waiting game is tied again
Backs of hands and phrases, misplaced gazes
Things we still deny to selves and hesitate to talk about

[Bridge: Jake Ewald]
A call from high school two drinks in
I smiled, but you could not see
Your tin-can cell receiver
Hummed its New York static song

The lever pulled and all at once
The floor was false, the center seam divided
Lace and well-pressed cotton
Found the flood we’d since forgotten

[Chorus 2: Jake Ewald]
We still leave our shoes at the door
Before we wring out our wet clothes
Across your floor and future
Stitch the gaps that destiny assumed
With floral sutures

Are you hiding, or have I abandoned you?
Let me learn here, I am in pursuit
Of all I can undo
Of all I can undo
