the latitude of our sunshine


the latitude of our sunshine
is found in the memories of you and i
pursuing our love song in dive bars
throughout this bitter country
despair in desolate places
we crave the comfort of strangers
clinging to each other
with a wanderlust
that is a moist folly
in between that is something else
something known but never spoken
the latitude of our sunshine
is nights riding home
head on shoulder in dirty cabs
driven by mad russians
or dirty hipsters
as drunk as we are in each other
there is only tomorrow like today
the latitude of our sunshine
is all about sunshine
and love
a love of you
for me
this is why it begins
where it will end
the latitude of our sunshine
is a story of you and i
a love affair
for our emo selves
