"To Withstand the Force of Storms" as written by and Bradley Ryen Vander Lugt Adam David Vass....
Oh, you've a pretty mouth,
Leave your lips to linger on my skin and
Kiss me one last time
I will roll off your tongue like a whisper in the winter
Sleeping in the sutures of the city's skin
Make yourself remember me in cold and concrete.

When will you realize this city/your demons make(s) you real

Oh, you've a pretty mouth,
Leave your lips to linger on my skin and
Kiss me one last time
I will roll off your tongue like a whisper in the winter
Sleeping in the sutures of the city's skin
Make yourself remember me in cold and concrete.
It's the way my hands felt lying still beneath your dress

(I am transparent,
I am a greenhouse filled with ghosts.)

Oh god, oh dear god

Whisper secrets, speak in a hushed voice
The first thing that you learn is that you never let them hear you
In a soundproof room, in a windowless world
Keep your voice down or dull your words.
Then,
Put on your bedroom face for him,
All pursed lips and half-closed eyes with pink-stained skin
Screaming for sleeping hands on downed dresses,
Screaming
For dead legs come alive, for dead legs come alive.

Oh dear god, there is no excuse for me

    General Commentsounds like a girl being taken advantage of for sexual reasons, or faking sexual feelings for the pleasure of a man, "put on your bedroom face for him, all pursed lips and half closed eyes". It's saying its just an act for her that she puts on. And it also talks about being totally isolated from everything else, "in a soundproof room, in a windowless world". No one will hear or see what they are doing an it's a secret, "whisper secrets, speak in a hushed voice. the first thing that you learn is that you never let them hear you". There could be the possibility that the girl lives on the street "remember me in cold and concrete" it's an amazing song though.
