I woke up today with the absolute belief
that you were going to come and visit me
thought of it as I went to work and wondered
what time your plane would arrive
they usually touch down before nine
maybe you flew to Frankfurt first
and then you caught a train here
or maybe you got the afternoon flight
and you’ll later appear
but I’m sure you’re near
don’t keep me waiting too long
don’t prove me wrong my dear

spring is in
the seasons have stripped the winter back
and word on the street is
that love is the new black
and here in my sun-kissed cave
I’m trying to behave as if my skin’s not falling off
as I wait for the day to call my bluff
and maybe I will turn my head
and I will see your outline
or maybe I won’t realise
until I hear the doorbell chime

sunlight hits trips me from my thrall
I wake to find that you’re not here at all
and as the minutes turn to months and then to years
I shift my weight shake my head
it’s done it’s gone move on
you’re not going to get the end you wanted
but what if it’s just security
and you’re stuck in customs
or maybe you did the usual
and you missed the bus here
but never fear
they come every fifteen minutes my dear

tonight I want to take my rest
with my head upon your chest
I can almost see you there
I can almost feel you
this isn’t madness sprung from grief
or denial that speaks
this is absolute belief


from The Savage and the Small, released November 26, 2011
