lyrics

Can I telegraph this
back to you somehow?
Collapse the distance,
Between our then and now.
Rewrite the history,
Reclaim our second act,
I’ve lost my sense of home,
and now there’s no going back.

We all become someone else’s work someday,
When all life’s vibrant signs turn back into decay.
Recovered memories retracing all our steps,
Encoded damages replacing all that’s left.
It’s not the same, I can’t make it be,
I can’t dig us out from under this debris.
Trapped under the crushing weight,
Of all my well-meaning mistakes.

Now I’ve lost myself again,
In all the places you’ve never been,
Nothing new in my way,
Somehow everything stays.
It all ends and begins,
It all feels the same,
It’s all familiar refrain.
It’s finally taking shape.

You said I live in my regrets,
That it’s a losing prospect,
If you’re all I can remember,
Maybe it’s best that I forget.

Now I’ve lost myself again,
In all the places you’ve never been,
Nothing new in my way,
Somehow everything stays.
It all ends and begins,
It all feels the same,
It’s all familiar refrain.
It’s finally taking shape.
