I wish you lived
longer

 

I wish you lived
in the corner of my eye,
you could swim
when I cry
see, what I see
my dream
would be your TV
a blink
would wipe your face
dim the light
if it’s too bright
hold on tight
think of the night,
know the tide
never stays
if I dive
don’t let her
wash you away
I wish you lived
in the corner of my eye,
you could swim
when I cry,
sing,
when I die
