Light pours around you
Daring not to touch your skin
Silhouetted gazing through open windows
What do you long to see
The shadow of dreams

On the tip of my tongue
More black than I thought could be real
Faces unidentifiable

A clenching in my throat
I once knew you well

A clenching in my throat
I once knew you well

A clenching in my throat
I once knew you well
(Even when I shut my eyes)

A clenching in my throat
I once knew you well
(Even when I shut my eyes)

Those wretched words
Paper thin
You promised sustenance
But the taste is all wrong
And in the back of my mind
A memory I can't recall
I can't recall

Now my lips have forgotten your name
We could control everything but this
Our scattered memories
Carry on the wind

Bodies shrouded in fleeting comforts
Carried away in a false dawn

Your fingers speak a language that I have so longed to hear

Your fingers speak a language that I have so longed to hear

Your fingers speak a language that I have so longed to hear
(Drown me in the din of your sorrows)

Your fingers speak a language that I have so longed to hear
(Draped in the cloak of dreams)

Those wretched words
Paper thin
You promised sustenance
But the taste is all wrong
And in the back of my mind
A memory I can't recall
I can't recall
