"I used to listen to my life,
I was so put together,
I chose what I wanted to be in that age of chasing sand,
the age of believing in everything,
but I couldn't save you,
I couldn't save what was taken away
and I'm still singing, and you still can't stay.
You "loved life," and those words have lasted,
I just wish I would have had ears for more than what you said
because I still feel the lack long after.
Such a light body, such a quiet gait leaving behind the weight of the world,
I'll always think it was too early to lose your shine,
I guess the means that ends us means nothing,
I just hope it's the peace we all need.
Because I could love and drown in your God damned smile lines,
but I think I Burnt up watching you rallying to stay alive,
and I guess that's fine.
It seems we all get sick,
we all die in some no name hospital with the same colored walls,
and I guess that's fine,
but I want to swallow, I want to stomach, I want to live.
It's been a rough while and some days are worth than others,
there's no proper way to feel, no mirth, no levity, no amazing grace,
just a flame on a lake floating away,
I cant let you lay,
I want you to know, I'm learning patience against my will,
I want you to know I'll get by, always barely scraping
with just a hunger, with just a heart apart,
It's a hell of a thing"
I should have their full set uploaded early next week, I just felt like this song deserved it's own post. This is the last song from their new record "The Lack Long After", the entire LP is nothing short of amazing from start to finish, it's out on Topshelf Records which if you haven't heard of them before you should check out all their bands.
