We've all got wildness
I've got a thwarted life
Pressing up against my ribs tonight
You've got your secrets
You've got your ghosts and dreams
Monsters and other-worldly things
We've got an Illinois winter
We've got a place to live together
All those roads not taken
All those songs unheard
Are dizzy spinning in their nether world

Don't say things like that
Don't say you'll let me go
Chasing some shadow down the road
I gave you my word
I said I'd be here with you
Be here with you all my life
If that don't mean everything
Nothing means anything
Nothing means anything

I could talk linguistics
You know the sign is not the thing
There's an infinite regression of meaning
I could be religious
Chain myself to black and white
Words on a page to guard my life
I see human eyes
I see your human face before me
Your words on the telephone
And your text messages
Are a lifetime of human language
