lyrics

Witness

In the quiet of the clearing
The white pines witness
Our bodies so close that our skin
Melts together like neon lights
In the puddles on the pavement
As it runs from the spring

And I’m more tired than awake
And my bones feel like strangers
And they’re heavy and they ache

In the quiet of the clearing
The white pines witness
What we both know is at stake

And I will walk until the faces
Fade into the sound
Of every time you told me
That you’d only let me down
