Aerosol

Originally written February 13, 2001

[intro]
to create something from nothing at all
in chemistry class, Harris Hall
friendship, happiness maybe more
we made something I can’t ignore

[verse]
it was this tension when I’d breathe
around my heart like an Easter wreath
something held me carelessly high
and the safety net was never tied

it was warm, delicate, a candle’s flame
for my soul I felt her claim
this feeling was soft as feathers fall
and as free as wind and aerosol

[chorus]
love’s as free as aerosol
that once blew through Harris Hall
now her perfume fades away
into a warm summer day
it’s a scene that’ll share us all
love is only aerosol

[verse]
our experiments in chemistry
are now taught in history
we were pure as distilled water
’til the eye of another caught her

and her flame burnt the wreath
left my heart falling beneath
for now she’s gone, maybe forever
i missed the chance to say i love her

[chorus]
love’s as free as aerosol
that once blew through Harris Hall
now her perfume fades away
into a warm summer day
it’s a scene that’ll share us all
love is only aerosol

[bridge]
can you feel the summer breeze
can you feel my burning knees
can you hear my endless prayer
to touch again her golden hair
can you hear my desperate call
please bring back my aerosol

[chorus]
love’s as free as aerosol
the one that blew through Harris Hall
now her perfume fades away
into a warm summer day
it’s a scene that’ll share us all
love is only aerosol
