I'm getting colder by they day and
it's only cause you're not here.
I'm wishing for silver bugs to fly me
over where you are.
And then i know that
Someone locked the door when i'm not home.

It's okay, It's a golden day, a golden day,
And tomorrow's coming up.
Take the bright,bright branches of lovely moments.

It was the look on your face that told me
you've always cared.
And i'll try to know your safe and
maybe that will make me sound.
And this i know dear,
My heart smiles when you're near.

It's okay, it's a golden day, a golden day,
and tomorrow's coming up.
take the bright, bright branches of lovely moments.

And in the morning,
i'll gather all the hope that's on my window,
and place them inside.

Chorus 2X

    General CommentI think this song is about a loved one leaving. Not necessarily "break-up" leaving, but going away for period of time. The person whose point of view this song tells is trying to tell themselves it's okay that the person isn't near, this person will be back in time.

    General Commentthis is my favorite eisley song... it's so beautiful, the melody rocks and the lyrics are heart shattering.

    "it was the look on your face
    that told me you've always cared
    and i'll try to know you're safe
    and maybe that will make me sound
    and this i know, dear:
    my heart smiles when you're near,"

    those are some of my favorite lyrics ever. says so much with so little..

    i agree with your interpretation, pantsuit. i like how cautiously hopeful the chorus sounds.

    General CommentI love this song. I never really listened to it because the first minute is them talking I just skipped over it, now. It makes me happy. It's so beautiful.

    General Commentthis is such an amazing song. I guess it's from the perspective of someone who is depressed and maybe a little mentally unstable. She's going through an especially hard time because she's separated from the person she loves, but she tries to keep herself hopeful and happy by thinking of the future.
    I like songs about dragons as much as the next person, but this song is unusually realistic for Eisley, and I really like it.
