Just stop this conversation
I'm up but I'm shaken, oh loneliness, how?
Close up on temptation
Just don't let me taste you, I'm holding me down

Hold back the curse of the light
Cold ash you taste so alive
You're so incredible, why can't I touch you?
Hold back decayed love and light

Just stop this conversation
Oh no I can't face them, alone in these hours
Missteps of the restless
I'm up but I'm breathless, oh loneliness, how?

Hold back decayed love of light
Hold back decayed love of light
Hold back decayed love of light
Hold...

Hold back the curse of the light
Cold ash you taste so alive
You're so incredible, why can't I touch you?
Hold back decayed love and light

Words of promise weigh down on us, settle in our bones
Once the dawn falls down upon us, I will let you go

    General CommentThis song is so amazing, the way it builds. I think it might be about ghosts, the way she says "why can't I touch you" but she's having a conversation and talking about letting them go. Plus the title, Passage.

    General CommentThis strikes me as being about death... specifically the death of a lover and the endless frustration and pain that brings. Sadly I’ve experienced this and that’s how the song comes across to me...

    Words of promise weigh down on us, settle in our bones
    Once the dawn falls down upon us, I will let you go...

    You carry the weight of promises made to those you truly love who are no longer with us... maybe once you die, once dawn falls upon us, we’ll be able to let that weight go...
