Walking down the unlit hallway of life
There's hope I know
There's an angel she follows me
Follows me close
She touches my shoulder
Sings words so clear they bring comfort to my ear
She guided me home

Breathe my love, wake my love
Hold me my love

Looking out into the skyline today
How will we ever stay
Composed her smile her soul
rising for miles, soul's rising for miles
Looking out into this morning she left
How will we ever rest
Staring at the ground we spread her around
They spread her around

Breathe my love, wake my love
Hold me my love

Coming in the haunted city at last
My heart beat fast
Down Kearny, down Pine, down Stockton, down Hyde
She followed me home
And I found you there asleep on my chair
I found you there
And I feel you near like you are still here
I feel you near

Breathe my love, wake my love
Hold me my love

Breathe my love, wake my love
Hold me my love

    General CommentLike so many, this song is about coping with loss. Note that it depicts a sense of denial in the chorus. It's about coming to grips with a loved one's absence while a part of them follows you all of your days.

    General CommentIt's a lovesong to San Francisco. Altho judging by the streets he namechecks, he's hanging out in the Tenderloin!
