06. Signs
Again, unlike any other Bloc song to date. The delicate music-box/glockenspiel intro is followed by billowing synths and a faint orchestral whitewash. Judging from the moving lyrics, this was written for a friend who recently passed away. Just past the three-minute mark, a full orchestra swoons in - a real hairs-on-the-back-of-the-neck moment. The most beautiful track on the album.

Key lyric: I see signs now all the time that you're not dead, you're sleeping / I believe in anything that brings you back home to me

Lyrics:
Two ravens in the old oak tree
And one for you and one for me
And bluebells in the late December
I see signs now all the time

The last time we slept together
There was something that was not there
You never wanted to alarm me
But I'm the one that's drowning now

I could sleep forever these days
'Cause in my dreams I see you again
But this time fleshed out fuller faced
In your confirmation dress

It was so like you to visit me
To let me know you were OK
It was so like you to visit me
Always worried about someone else

At your funeral, I was so upset
So, so upset
In your life you were larger than this
Statue, statuesque

I see signs now all the time
That you're not dead, you're sleeping
I'd believe in anything that brings you back home to me
