You Can’t Explain Anything

You just need something to believe.
Do you believe
there’s someplace else you’d rather be?
Believe I want to be near.

You can’t explain anything,
not least why I’ve thought of you forever.
and that all that I hear
is you saying goodnight.

You can’t explain anything,
especially why all that I hear
every cold night
is you saying goodnight.

You can’t explain anything,
so when someday you think
there’s some voice inside
calling your name,

calling your name
right where you stand,
don’t pause to ask how.
You can’t explain anything.
