"Lucky cloud in your sky/a little rain." - Arthur Russell


When it feels you’re not on my side
It’s like I might as well have died

Years ‘fore you opened your eyes
Oh darling for the first time

I would wait, torn up by a want
For someone I could only haunt

Days into decades crawl by
While I am watching your life

You couldn’t want a kiss
From someone you don’t know to miss

I keep my phantom limbs far
From wherever we are

Can’t know if you’ll be left between
Here and there from what I have seen

Cursed to wish joy for your heart
Though it may keep us apart

If you crossed to the other side
Not to’ve known I had lived or died

I’d still say my fortune was clear
So lucky to have loved you while you’re here
