1983: A Secret describes a surprising discovery about love in Plano, TX.

lyrics

Through the open window, I can see
The great big swell of impossibility.
But on my pillow, I can dream.
In my pocket, my fingers feel the seams.

I tell a secret to my hand,
So that I can understand.
When it hears the words I say,
It answers back: “don’t despair, and don’t delay”

I dreamt my body was an ear.
I felt all the things I couldn’t hear.
I made a word that wasn’t real.
I was reversed; I was revealed.

I tell a secret to my hand,
So that I can understand.
When it hears the words I say,
It answers back: “don’t despair, and don’t delay”
