lyrics

Fall, through a skylight,
on the concrete I awoke,
to beautiful silence.
Quiet calm, sitting upright;
this is where the world finds breath,
the pulse of the day.
Please, don’t let me forget this,
it is everything I need, to believe.

Don’t let it paralyze you,
this isn’t the end that you’ve come to;
You’re deep in the ache for real love,
it lives in the dust you were made of.

Still the sirens are singing,
there’s a mountain in my mind,
that needs to be moved.
Aching will, my conscience is ringing,
if my life was meant to fade,
then why would I know?

Don’t let it paralyze you,
this isn’t the end that you’ve come to;
You’re deep in the ache for real love,
it lives in the dust you were made of.
There’s nothing but air between us,
but still we destroy what we don’t trust.
In the fall of the leaves before spring,
there’s something that’s worth all the suffering.

And the one that turned the light on,
can feel the deepest of your pain,
the poets are calling from the streets,
to make the deepest mysteries plain,
and you’re in the storm before the calm,
it’s just a moment, a moment.

Don’t let it paralyze you,
this isn’t the end that you’ve come to;
You’re deep in the ache for real love,
it lives in the dust you were made of.
There’s nothing but air between us,
but still we destroy what we don’t trust.
In the fall of the leaves before spring,
there’s something that’s worth all the suffering.
