lyrics

Tell me your name like it was the first time
that you spoke it to my nervous eyes back when your hair was long
That night I dreamed it stretched around the room
Flowing out until I was consumed

You sat so still looking down on me
You gave knowing winks with half a smile
It felt so genuine
I fell asleep, fell right out of my head
and never learned what happened next

Still, I take comfort in what you said
You said that we will rise up
Everyday is a viable way
A chance to rework the habits that verge on absent tragedy
Every day in day out

Phone calls about the day just don't allow for a way to see the other one
Your voice keeps cutting out
Out from the ashes burning up the sky
Still I can't imagine our goodbyes
So let down your guard in and I will do the same
We could start again a newborn life
We'll grow our hair our long
Live in the country write each other songs
Every night in each other's arms

So I take comfort in what you said
You said that we will rise up
Everyday is a viable way
A chance to rework the habits that verge on absent tragedy
Every day in day out

Knowing what can't rebuild, we're both thrown around like dust
Moving but without control, I know this will be rough
So I'll hold my breath, living out a death or are we letting go
Either way you wish to think you really must accept our inconsistent growth
