lyrics

Couldn’t hear the words that she spoke
I remember feeling so stoned
I remember the picture of you

Magic in our cells that divide
Who knew which were yours and were mine
Stems imprinted
Pass deep through time

Sad eyes all in waiting room blue
Empty hands that never held you
Ribbons replaced by tape and clear tubes

Ten years later, I remember alone (a ghost)
Decades pass, not much to show

Couldn’t hear the hope he consoled
I remember feeling so stoned
I remember the picture of you

Tears were shed but they weren’t my own
The gate shut, but the secret was told
Autumn leaves fell, then we froze

Ten years later, I remember alone (a ghost)
Missed the chance to get to know you
Decades pass, not much to show

Travelled south to escape the snow
The sun couldn’t keep out the cold

Tithing - Inhaling - Ruminating - Waiting
Tithing - Inhaling - Ruminating - Waiting
Tithing - Inhaling - Ruminating - Waiting
Tithing - Inhaling - Ruminating - Waiting
