lyrics

I know you like the quiet
when dusk fell, the desert hushed silence
to forget me, you travelled miles
maybe this is all that I’ll find
that I’m still mute in your mind

I know you like the silence
but god, my body’s screaming to be recognized
a space I thought I held in your eyes
what I’ve failed to see this time
is I’m a mere distant cry

here I’m falling down the well of time you decline
screaming my callings are echoing cries that always guide
me to light, these walls breathe life
now I’m alone
but I have the comfort of my own song

severed strings and broken things on the ground
you say you love me just the same now
I don’t believe the words you weave in your mouth
do you still say my name out loud?
does it really make no sound?

here I’m falling down the well of time you decline
screaming my callings are echoing cries that always guide
me to light, these walls breathe life
now I’m alone
but I have more comfort in my own song

forget me in the trees if you must
I’ll rustle leaves and whisper our old songs
leave me here, the wind feels clear and soft
know that I once loved
until our words became dust
desert dust
desert dust
desert dust
