you say you don't know
if these cuts will stay closed
my hand will lay open
by your bed railing
waiting for yours

tangled up in wires
it's hard for me to get you to smile
this loneliness keeps you awake
and the darkness it tastes like blame
but you've done nothing wrong

i would stretch the sunlight
across the hospital room
for you hope to find you
we'll repair your lifeline
bright with colors to make you feel brand new

you feel like your nothing
like you could disappear
but i would give anything
to get you to look at me
like you'll see me again

i would stretch the sunlight
across the hospital room
for hope to find you
so hold on hold on
you'll make your way out of this soon
hold on hold on
have faith in the heart inside of you

when your sadness starts to weigh you down
when your sadness starts to bring you down
i'll lift that weight from off of your skin

    General CommentAnyone think Sadness is a Weight and October Ghost are linked?

    I've been listening to them back to back and there seems to be a theme.

    I haven't fully analyzed the lyrics though..just enjoying the sounds.
