Your memory trickles into my heart and makes it ache
Saturday morning coffee wafting through the apartment
The aroma gently knocking over the paper walls I used
to shield myself from the dark, heavy,Β electrifying past I was
trying to forget
But someone's brewing coffee and
I'm suddenly in a hundred airports and cafΓ©s with free wifi
Saying goodbye, saying temporary things
The smell hits me like leaving, like my chest swelling up with poison tears
Frantic fingers typing on a keyboard begging for your company
My throat tenses up my heart's a rabbit racing for its life
Our painful beginnings and ends in
those pungent lounges and departure gates
until I miss you more than I want to keep breathing
