    So here's my submission... I tried to just keep it simple.

    Cello + Vocals and a Tiny Desk.

    I feel like I figured out a little of what the song is about for me as I was playing it... and though I don't want to say what it's "about", for me it had a lot to do with the music that saved me and made me so incredibly appreciative of connection through music, through me and the people that made it, though we've never met.

    Lyrics:

    We're not here
    we're not there
    we're not looking
    we can only stare

    It's not over
    it's not under
    we're not sober
    filled with wonder

    This time I thought the time had come
    when you would know me like the law;
    as if I was someone who could be everywhere
    or not at all.

    Move like water
    you're on fire
    it's in the air
    we taste like earth

    There's light moving
    between our bodies
    it's on the tip of my tongue

    I thought I was the only one
    who could feel it in my bones
    I thought I was the only one
    but now I know I'm not alone

    I was looking for you
    in a huge room
    no second chance to give

    I thought I was the only one
    who could
    feel you in there Show less
