Shorthand

I've been adrift out in this desert floating along until I see her distant shores.

Shorthand

she says she don’t need no one to come to her rescue

and that’s good cause I ain’t got no oars

I’ve been adrift out in this desert float along until

I see her distant shores

maybe I’m the one needs rescuing tonight

maybe she’ll throw me a line

it’s funny how the more I feel the less I say

the more free my heart, the more my tongue gets tied

but I hope she knows that I’m thinking of her tonight

self-park garage, a friendly hug

she takes my hand – there goes the rug

an August romance underneath florescent lights

a nice wine buzz, a rooftop bar

from up here we can so so far

and I’ve become aware that my hand is on her thigh

maybe I’m the one …

a stolen glass, a nervous kiss

the things that make relationships

the tiny gestures that no one else would understand

you build a language all your own

hand signals, mirrors, inside jokes

and over time they become a kind of shorthand

maybe I’m the one … yeah I hope you know that I’m thinking of you tonight
