it's 2 am
i can't get to sleep
because the rains
spelling your name
on my bedroom windows

i don't know how i got here
or why i still am
but if i had any reason
for breathing at all
it's your face that lights up
when you're telling a story
it's the way you listen to me
when i talk of purgatory

i can't think of a reason
to just get out of my bed
but a text from you
is an instant read
showers on
10 minutes
i'm on the way
call me any time of day
call me every time of day

and so here i am awake
it's 2:18 am
your messages are open
you're my way of coping
my eyes squeeze shut
i can't get out of this rut
i delete what i wrote
there's a lump in my throat
the tears start falling
i try not to start bawling
but when you're in love with your best friend
there never is an end
