lyrics

Dark, sharp shape,
calling me in,
inside the walls of my cave.

Burning again.
Burning me down in this
unsafe place.

I hope that you'll leave
and you're not so surprised but it
hurts the same.
And you stay...

Waiting for someone to hear you.
Waiting for comfort that never comes in the way,
in the way you want it to.

You softly cry.
Gently betrayed,
left in the wake of a lie.
Hidden from view
and it's all I can do just to
seem alright.
When everyone says that there's
nothing to fear but I
feel your fire.
And you stay...

If you slow down,
You're not alone.
If we slow down,
We're not alone.

Listening is an uplifting journey through a world that is at once darkly nostalgic and hauntingly beautiful. ... more
