Lines in the Dust

lyrics

You moved out, then I moved out
It was a mess but it ended with a whisper
I almost wish that we had never
promised each other we’d never
have contact again

Days were quiet, nights were loud
I couldn’t stop you from crying in my sleep
The place was very empty
all the memories that were lived here
were reminders of when we were good friends

The dust has settled, it took a year
I came back, just one more tear
The curtains were pulled but I pushed them aside
There were lines in the dust on the window that cried
I-L-O-V-E, there was more that I just couldn’t bear to read
I sat against the wall where the bed had rested once
and cried like a child for some silly little lines in the dust

So long gone, don’t even know where
I’d look for you but nothing would be different
I think I’m better off just knowing
somewhere in your heart you’re holding
a little bit of love aside for me

And just in case, if by some chance
You should come again and push aside these curtains
To assure you that I love you and I know that you had been here
I left a little answer for you to read

The dust has settled, it took a year
I came back, just one more tear
The curtains were pulled but I pushed them aside
There were lines in the dust on the window that cried
I-L-O-V-E, oh there was more that I just couldn’t bear to read
I sat against the wall where the bed had rested once
and cried like a child for some silly little lines in the dust

I chose to use my surname, "Schweitzer," for practical reasons, realizing long ago that pronouncing "Richard Schweitzer" was difficult. "Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
