I originally wrote this song in a fake British accent and it took some time to adapt it to my own American voice. "Give a man a mask" says Oscar Wilde "and he'll tell you the truth." Heath Ledger's Joker says the same.


Talking old school crossing ninth street by the barricades
Street life lit by headlights moving in parade
Sixteen years and you resurface. All we knew is swallowed like
So many nameless snowflakes falling on the waves

Sidewalk handout, It’s the ending of the world
So I say I always loved you when you were a girl
As a boy it seemed to me your eyes had seen a thousand summers
In our English class trespassing through the week
Stern angelic eyes cut me so deep
I tried to reach you so many times
Heaven knows I tried
At least in my mind

Well you got some nerve to come to me so late
All grown up and teaching seventh grade
Standing like a poison blossom denim jacket faded dress
We join the crowd like snowflakes falling on the waves

Small beneath the moon and battlements above
We laugh among the ghosts of thwarted love
Talking about the world we knew of public phones and space rock albums
Hungry souls in feral houses fade into the streets we crossed today
