Flowers of black cottonwood
Lie across my lap.
A shape in the clearing moves
Like a thought I shouldn't have.

I know when i get that look
You’re too shy to ask.
I know that you want me to
Tell you that "I am here for good."

The sky turns an uncertain blue
Where it isn't overcast.
It’s past the time we really should
Start walking back.

I know when you give that look
We’ve lost the time we have
I know that you want me to
Tell you that "I am here for good."

It’s more complicated than the truth.
What this is can’t last.
But tell me what else can i do when
You tell yourself that "I am here for good?"
