In the darkness
And the static's in your hand
And the warm sense of solace that blows 'round the ground

And the spirit says
In the clouds that you can't see
As your chest fills with flame
As your chest fills with flame

A broken strand, a new romance
That cuts you loose
Your thawed heart thumps its drum all the time
All the time

And I'm on fire
With the things I could've said
But you never asked so they just stayed inside my head
And you tell me now
That the same words pursed on your lips
Slow down, speak up, I hear you now

She says she barely sleeps
And if she does it's fitfully
Her heart beats on her sleeve
And if she dreams, she dreams of
A place she'll never see
And words she'll break down frantically to keep
In verse in dusty books
Hidden in snow buried as deep as roots, she says
"Que sera sera, what will be, will be"
So "c'est la vie," she says
Sheets and snow, sheets to cover me
"Que sera sera,
C'est la vie," she says
Don't help me
I'm tired and far too gone to leave
