Start out so loud
welcome attention
One day it’s quiet
Where is the engine?

Someday we’ll turn up when it’s too late
Only reaching what we hear when it starts to fade
Someday all the colors have to change
Endings and beginnings will appear but not today

We’ve all been looking
To head off the tension
Don’t sound surprised when
We ask for directions

Why have we convinced ourselves to wait?
Standing next to windows and watching out for rain?
Present like the time but nothing gained
Holding out for someday every time but not today

Someday this winds down but not today
