The desk where you sit inside of a
Frame made of wood
I keep those chopsticks you had from when
You taught abroad in Japan

I love it all so much
I call
I want you back

I did not know you as well
As my father knew you
Every question you took the
Time to sit and look it up in the
Encyclopedia

I love it all so much
I call I want you back

It sounds like we
Would of had a great deal to say
To each other
I bet when I leave
My body for the sky the wait will
Be worth it
