The Last Autumn I spent in my hometown I was incredibly alive. We said goodbye to summer and I fell in love for the last time. So I drew out my limitations to find the reasons I was leaving. This town just wasn’t big enough for the both of us. My apathy and I just couldn’t take it. Or maybe I just gave a shit and had to embrace it. So now I keep wondering what I’m missing out on, the bonfires and late night drives. Our hoodies carried us to winter as we refused to stay inside. So I made my way to Chicago to live beneath the city lights, but I kept thinking of starry nights in Normal and that diner before sunrise. My lust for progress was waning like leaves in their decline surrendering themselves to their inevitable demise. I didn’t know it at the time but I loved it. It didn’t take me very long to know that I missed it. When the lights go off, and the band dissolves, and the empty rooms and barstools only come to life through a clear mind’s eye, may you never lose your sight. In the corner of your room, in the back of your mind, in the town where you grew up our memories will stay alive.
