lyrics

How could such grace ever be found?
We acted ages we are not now,
you looked the sum of your parts; such contentedness,
You should have been my patron saint.
It's hard enough to admit,
when we get to the base of it,
That what fleeting love bloomed in your eyes like a flower,
Was most likely the wine, or the hour.

The way you shook that night, with such elegance.
Your pail limbs outstretched like spiders legs.
Eyes wet and red with tales yet to tell.
Y'know, I've got so many regrets,
But you were never one of them.

We don't talk like we used to no more,
No deep meaning remains, no mysteries to explore,
But I still think of you if the hour is right,
When what's wrong hides well in plain sight.
While I burned for you you froze up alone,
In the maw of some beast, in the dark before dawn,
I wish I'd known what to say, wish I'd some greater wit,
Some perfect verse to bring you release.
