Blackbox (Grizol Nana)

You fell in love with the sunshine And you took a walk with a boy You spent half a year on the verge of tears Just because nothing ever feels like it did before So now I understand if you're bitter Frankly sometimes I do feel the same It's amazing how in your own homes how the comfort and the pain Well they just grow This is the field where I realized I loved you And they just grow This is the diner where we learned that people die before their time sometimes The impermanence of it all Don't you let it make you feel too very small We saw new constellations with each observation The night sky grows bigger it seems But under our ceilings is much more revealing You'll find what we found in our dreams And I dreamt that all my old friends got together again And potluck is something somewhere that we've never been And we settle and it's so strange The way that people in situations change You got caught up in some crazy current Now it seems as though we speak a completely different language But you'll always be as beautiful as the moment that we met And so I tried to write a song for my father San francisco bus ride that take way too long He said "you're coming back home boy, Don't feel so alone Love yourself and you'll do no wrong." But the interstate and life go on and on And on and on and on and on And I wrote my dad a nice blackbox recording Just to hear what people say When they realize what's coming About a second or so away He said, "it starts with 'oh shit' and it ends with 'I'm sorry'" And it plays in his head all the time And I'm not oh and it's so crazy The ways we all sabotage our very own peace of mind
