i loved you
how i adored you
following you from city to city

it all nearly killed me

i moved through those mesmerized crowds
as a roaming shadow on the back wall
something to throw your voice against,
your life upon

the lyric predictably failed between us
long before
the music died

my heart instead
allowed to wander inside deaf applause.


t­he music ended
the lyric failed

i was everything but the applause
