lyrics

well the bed is like dying but better
and your dusky breath is for me forever
I believe there is more to this world than the things that I see when I turn out the light
side by side in the kitchen with coffee that morning the trees bloomed obscenely and wild
every kiss was a glory so snowflake so starry I could not remember my name
I just want it back I want all of it back though I'm told that it's never the same

I wrestled with demons all night
and alone in the morning believed that I'd triumphed
but now I suspect they slipped my chest with the ghosts of old lovers and kings
to laugh as the heat from my skin ignites each person I love in turn
oh beloved human oh terminal case I can see that you're learning to sing
so punch your voice up through the sky and wait for the echoes to ring

And if someday when you're far away the sky rings with the sound of your wedding bells
the sunlight won't know the name of the trees, the trees won't know that I used to be the one that you came home to
all around us we are outlasted and distance checks forgetful hearts
I may fade like breath on glass but the river never stops and the river never starts
the river just runs

all my faith is flickering like unused attic lights
in a rainstorm in an old wooden church, late on a tuesday night
the eternity I am chasing, just a trick of the light on the eye
but oh to be alive for just a moment before I die
breathing in unison, staring eye to eye
oh the sudden lightness in this world can leave you blind
