lyrics

Sinking, putting both feet forward
Feel you barely brush my skin
Hear it coming through the floorboards
Waiting, we’ve barely jumped in

I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own
The nightbirds won’t leave me alone in a quieter scene

Pacing, take it slow, I promised
Wonder, are we stalled instead?
Time now for that departing kiss
Hating that I’m so stuck inside my head

I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own
The nightbirds won’t leave me alone in a quieter scene

Give me a knife to cut the tension
Give me a lost signal
Give me a reason to continue and a hand that I can hold
Give me a month to grow accustomed
Give me a heartfelt cue
Give me a sign that it’s alright for me
A sign that it’s alright for me
A sign that it’s alright for me to give everything to you

I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own
The nightbirds won’t leave me alone
Lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own
But I know I’m always alone in a quieter scene
