    For all the heart broken.

    When you close your eyes to think,

    I find my eyes turn to you And when your beauty is turned away, I find courage to look then too And with a quick glance you catch me, And you laugh as you do For that you see past my shyness, For this I love you, that is true.

    Lonely Tree

    Sometimes I wished I'd have toys, other years games. But I don't really remember when, I wished for a woman in my bed. Maybe when I was ringing groceries, into a laser eyed counter. Maybe the first time my car got stuck in a snowy patch in winter. But I remember the boughs of...
