Linger

Linger
words by Rob Orndorff

It’s not because I want you....I need you
It’s not because I need you...I want you
from the moment I saw you...I knew you
and now I am all around you...It’s not you
Don’t think about the time
It breaks you open wide
The books on the shelf
remind me of myself

So I just figure
some things linger
longer than they last

And life is for the strong
I know
It’s how we get along
So fine
Find your place in line
Alright

So I just figure
some things linger
longer than they last

That beach is not us
Not that dark sea
No longer
Not deeper
then the sand on the wind
No stronger than the rising tide
This the world falls flat
Without you to dream it round

a brown box, a wedding ring
dust and glass and wooden things

So I just figure
some things linger
longer than they last

Nothing Going On

Nothing Going On
Words by Rob Orndorff

So come on
let’s get back to it
I’ll flip the dime and you’ll spin the bottle
check the time
day light is over
no one’s watching anymore

There’s nothing going on here
we have no future
so we have no fear
turn off the lights and breathe in the night
see how far we go

we’ve been searching for the sign
some way to fall off time
let’s steal a car and drive
we’ll take photos from the shadows
and color outside the lines

There’s nothing going on here
we have no future
so we have no fear
turn off the lights and breathe in the night
see how far we go

the real world is far below
a shimmering doubt
in a swirl of gray
i don’t want to be
all reason and wind
let’s live the mystery
before it fades away

There’s nothing going on here
we have no future
so we have no fear
turn off the lights and breathe in the night
see how far we go
