lyrics

Weathered hands cling tight to the essence of my delicate skin
Turn out the light, a lullaby, persevere 'til the darkness ends

Hold my hands through this until your knuckles have blanched white
I learned from you but followed through like ships passed in the night

I'm running from myself again barefoot on broken glass
In solitude, the hatred grew, and I could not look back
Perspective from the pavement brought me closer to the Earth
I took flight on those restless nights
Intoxicate, gravitate to the moonlit brights

"Sleep tight my love"
While the rhythm of our beating hearts align frozen in time
I slept through the night
But the cosmic arms that caused me harm eclipsed my guiding light

Drift off to sleep, she weeps, as trepidation creeps (come back to me)
Dig up the bones, the remnants of our fractured colony

Flash of lightning struck me down yet again
The coldest darkness washes over me
If I radiate your body until it's gone
I want to feel more vindicated when I see you disappear

When I see you re-imagined right here in your perfect form
You've got the fire left to be reborn
Into a picture perfect reflection of me
A reflection of me

All I feel is winter
I've fallen in your eyes, you feed the flame inside
All I feel is winter
I've fallen in your eyes

Oh, they grow, the branches of my soul
Into my dreams, it seems, I'm somewhere in between
Feeling the grief, relief, my own mortality
I've fallen in your eyes but you still feed the flame in me

"Sleep tight my love"
While the rhythm of our beating hearts align frozen in time
I slept through the night
But the cosmic arms that caused me harm eclipsed my guiding light

Drift off to sleep, she weeps, as trepidation creeps (come back to me)
Dig up the bones, the remnants of our fractured colony
