Matt Keating, “They Came in May”


I can feel you in the ether
I still see you on the stairs
Where I left you In September
By November you were no longer there

Well I always looked before I leapt
But I fell anyway
And all the tears I never wept
In July
They came in May

At the bottom of the ocean
There’s a potion that you can take
To kill all of this emotion
Keep you open to all they’ll take

Well you always looked before you leapt
But you fell anyway
And all the tears I never wept
In July
They came in May

And the dirt floor above your headboard
Cuts the last chord that you will play
So was it sorrow that made you borrow
What you could not seem to find?
Well you’d rest easy if you could just see
That trail of beauty you left behind

Well I always
Looked before I leapt
But I fell anyway
And all those tears
I never wept
In July
They came in May
