Our Eyes Will Never Change


Drinking Doctor Pepper
in Joan Jett leather

Sweaty legs
ice cream line

Michigan
summertime
God damn
I want you

back

In 1986
holding hands
first kiss
lips
fingering your grandmother's crucifix on the wrong side of Mack
take me

back

Come on
let me touch you
hug you
slide my hands
inbetween you
like that night down Woodward in your daddy's car

We haven't gone too far

Sit with me
and reminisce
I miss days like this
Belle Isle
swimming
reading
singing 
playing guitar under the stars

I don't care what happened in the snow
the things you did
I've let it go
the things I said
when we were cold
nothing can ever be the same
I know
but our eyes will never change
and the sun will shine again
