lyrics

When I was younger
closets seemed immense.
I used to think that I
could run away for days
inside their darkness.

But I'm too old to runaway
so I simply hide my bones
and closets become more like
a coffin than a home.

My closet's too small now
for all my ghosts in bloom
I'm thinking about moving them all
to a bigger room.

One that will keep their murmurs
about a boy they know so well
hushed and alone for no one
to hear or tell.

Among my dearest friends
we all keep some doors closed
we do it with sincerity
so no one ever knows.

How often do you go there?
To that place you try to hide
it's been years since I
walked inside mine.
