Open up a window, (...) the water

Pulling on a pathway, calling in a (...), whispering and passing (...)

And every time I see you, I have to pretend I don’t
You thought that it would help, but it's only made us fall apart

(...) in the water, (...) in the shadows, (...) I know where your lie(?) is
Why is nothing changing, maybe (...)

And can’t you see us fading, soon there won’t be anyone there
It's funny when you fuck up, no one really has to care

Sometimes I wish that none of this had happened
That our sad song be carried into the sea

Unsteady as the water (...) shadows
(...)

And maybe you were right when you said I've never been in love
How can I explain why it's safer when I feel alone?

What has been done can never be undone
So take your sad song, and sing it to (till?) the next life

Maybe you were right when you said I’ve never been in love
How can I explain why how(?) safe(r) it feels to be alone?

    General CommentThese aren't exactly the easiest lyrics to transcribe, with all the whispering and overlapping text, so suggestions are welcome!

    General Comment"My secret is to be alone" might be the closing line. Regardless, the melancholy comes across without needing absolute clarity of what is being sung.
