slipping between us, the ghost & the mourning
prayers spent finding, a reason to stay
painful and aching, the balance is breaking
with so many words, I don't know what to say....


our planets break orbit like paper and water
delicate dancing on the edge of her lips
something unsettled, and something remembered
something forgiven, keeps silent with-in
and she turns to me with tears in her eyes
as if she doesn't see the tempest inside
and our hearts are beating, but no-one is breathing
a small thing I think, so close to the end

The clock is ticking, time is escaping- I know I must be standing on my own
and something sacred, it could be dying - I know, and I stare with headlights now approaching
blankets of sadness, bound up and cover, happiness lost, I must have buried here
inside I'm reaching, inside i'm pleading, I can't be losing everything...
that I remember...

oh, Memorare
oh, Memorare


Kisses left longing, somewhere behind us
asking for comfort, like cats in-between
and this new regretting, how foolish the choices
that once seemed so meaningful, sturdy, & sane.
our seconds of silence, last half of forever-
searching for glimpses that lovers embraced
how close and how distant, we stand to each other
knowing that nothing, can ever be replaced

The clock is ticking, time is escaping- I know I must be standing on my edge
and something sacred, moments reflecting - I know, and I stare with headlights now approaching
blankets of sadness, bound up and cover, happiness lost, I must have buried here
inside I'm reaching, inside i'm pleading, I can't be losing everything...
that I remember...

oh, Memorare
oh, Memorare

The clock is ticking, time is escaping- I know I must be standing on my edge
and something sacred, moments reflecting - I know, and I stare with headlights now approaching
blankets of sadness, bound up and cover, happiness lost, I must have buried here
inside I'm reaching, inside i'm pleading, I can't be losing everything...
that I remember...
