about

A sort of farewell.

lyrics

i have to get this off my chest
i think the sun came up too fast
it’s 9am, we’re half asleep
i hate to but i have to leave

my back is sore, my thighs are bruised
our clothes are strewn across the room
the bonfire is out by now
a trail of smoke, a pile of ash
we both knew this could never, never last

so don't reminisce
don't you miss
all the places you'll never return
to the ruins of my skin
i have seen the walls cave in
eternity is but a myth
don't you know love is mortal?

the boxes are all loaded up
how did we gather this much dust?
the early summer smells like death
i'm always running from the end

learn to make do without goodbye
you never know when you’ll have the chance
just a moment and then we’re gone
such a fallible, mortal, mortal love

so don't reminisce
don't you miss
all the places you'll never return
to the ruins of my skin
i have seen the walls cave in
eternity is but a myth
don't you know love is mortal?

i’m thinking of you on the A
we’re pulling in to jay street
across the track another train
arrives in sync, then speeds away
