Drifting in and out of song
Drifting in and out of rigid structures
Running round in what I know
Try to take the moment like it’s brand new
Living near a gaping dark
Underneath the noise of fake beginnings
I can’t keep our worlds apart
Hours turning into dust behind me

But don’t you forget about me
Years and years run down
Voices left in stone
Caught up in something else
(When you leave behind a path
Tired but intact
Gone a different way
You don’t need to ask
It’s all you can say
A foot on the ground
But that’s a different day
A far away sound)

When I feel a curtain draw
Whenever I know I’m lost
I get stuck in older love
Something I look back on way too much
I don’t know how to figure out
What I know from scenes I exit slowly
I just keep on walking forth
Drifting in and out of song

Keep the colors you want
You’re not at odds with this
With our voices warm
You’re not at odds with this
