an old song i still really love. another story about secrets and how we keep them in fear of messing things up.


The last thing I remember
was the touch of your hand on my skin
and I couldn’t forget her
Couldn’t let you go if I tried
I know that you’re fading further
and I had tried to let you in
But a chance is something-
I never tried, I left it to die

You were sound asleep, while I lay awake
With your head on the bed next to me
Thinking what more could it be​​
I kept awake, awake for hours on end
In my head I played games and I’d like to pretend
That we’d be more than friends

If I died here tonight you would never know
All the things I kept lost in my head
With your red lipstick on and your red coat
Your eyes flutter and i feel it all over again
I’m trapped in my own silence
I’m trapped in the quiet of a dream
I’m a body floating out through the sea
There’s nobody out here except for you and me

I saw the stars in your eyes tonight
I saw every piece of the sky
I saw the stars in your eyes tonight
As you said goodbye
