as our breath cast silhouettes on the faces of our father's wives
from spewing sharp and cold remarks, the sting fresh on our cheeks
with the red sun peeking through the remnants of the morning fog
your hand between my fingers tightened to tell me we were free

we lit camel cigarettes with the dashboard of your mother's car
spewing sparks from rusted parts and dug our hands into the soil
and i remember this so well; the rebellion was so easily felt
the dirt beneath our fingers echoed what so quickly fades away

in those days we barely knew our own names
and we played those sweet, innocent games
where you followed my silhouette to pin it down
against concrete split open by life
we were sprouts reaching for the sky
that under their shadows we couldn't see
