Floating through the frozen grass
Hours dance in slow motion
Between years ahead and passed
Baby, can you hear me now?
Flying, blazing, before the fall
Holding my heart still, once more
Calling beyond cold stone walls
Chains are locked and tied across the door
Dark specks in your golden eyes
The ragged scars through your brow
Whispering truth within lies
Baby, sing with me somehow
The knife, the needle, can’t see
Deeper than they’ll ever know
Softness, when you look at me
Please. Don’t let go.
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
