lyrics

Don't look back

You wrote "I hope these letters will one day wash on the shore
See I've been counting all of the strokes
And I hope somebody knows I'm drifting through the floor"

Over and over again walking in circles
And then passing the time until you crawl back in bed

Wake up
We only wanted you
Wake up
We only wanted you to see the sun

Do you think of when you lost a friend?
You couldn't talk him down from the ledge

Speak! She's begging, but you don't say a thing
You sit in silence watch her staring at her wedding ring
See the windows of the church across the street
Looking down at you like mourners at a wake

And you stare hard into the stained glass
Until it hurts to lift your head
The clouds are gathering off in the distance
A storm is rolling in.

Underground
(Your words fall through)
Beneath the trees
(I don't believe you)
Nothing left
(I need to see it in your eyes)
You're part of the dirt that we're left to breathe
(Always waiting)
And the leaves they fall
(So frustrating)
And the seasons change
Seems after all
You're just some pages in a journal that no one will read
