lyrics

New
Airborne soul.
Beautiful
And not that old.
For them,
An ill-held, wounded eye
That, Far from home,
Feels their hue and cry

Life is me
Life is here
But when
You can’t hear
I just see
The scream
Life would seem
Much less unseen
My girl,
If you would plead
To miss that scene with me

They
Read what he had penned
A vain attempt to
Understand this end.
He wrote,
‘Preach hope to my friends.
And when hope fades, just preach hope again.’


Chorus

Old
Doubts and hate apart
She can’t
Trust them not to start
But how,
When she always denies,
Can she stand re-living it through her eyes?

My friends,
What you need to know -
My friends,
Life is a penultimate show
My friends,
I skipped my curtain call
Because
I had found a frame where the shade obscured my fall

Let go
Let go
Let them all go (repeated)

Life is me
Life is here
But when
You can’t hear
I just see
The scream
Life would seem
Much less unseen
My girl,
If you would plead
To miss that scene with me Life is me

Life is here
But when
You can’t hear
I just see
The scream
Life would seem
Much less unseen
My girl,
If you would plead
To miss that scene with me
