lyrics

The second storm was coming ‘round
like a fire escape you were bleeding out.
I asked you to come inside.
You asked me, “Why?”

The last call heard me out
to fill my cup like a fire found.
Safest place above you now.
Rain water filling up my mouth.

But this is how these things play out.
So, don’t let it get you down.

Now, you built your own cross
to bury what you’d lost.
Your embers calmed me down—
last words still ringing loud.

As long as I’d known you,
you were always falling through.
But the trees were all below
shaking like me, slow.

But this is how these things play out.
So, don’t let it get you down.
