Eyelash Wishes

It's a new year but with the same old times
Gonna write a new verse with the same old rhymes
Saying this time will be different I know my life can change
Still got the same old body still got the same old brain

Eyelash wishes that she blows off of her fingers
A prayer for grace or love or peace the world can bring her
A moment stolen dreaming all her favorite singers
Those eyelash wishes that she blows off of her fingers

We need to catch a break
We just can't live this way
Can't stay this uninspired
Can't carry all this weight
That morning in the diner
She rubbed her sleepy eyes
I took an eyelash from her cheek
She set it free to fly

Eyelash wishes that she blows off of her fingers
A prayer for grace or love or peace the world can bring her
A moment stolen dreaming all her favorite singers
Those eyelash wishes that she blows off of her fingers

Wanna open all her curtains
Wanna unlock all her doors
Wanna squeeze the sorrow from her
Til it leeches from her pores
That morning at the diner
We promised to be new
The sun flashed off the table
Said I will change
I will change
I will change
I will change for you

Eyelash wishes that she blows off of her fingers
A prayer for grace or love or peace the world can bring her
A moment stolen dreaming all her favorite singers
Those eyelash wishes that she blows off of her fingers
