Second track on our new single


I’m falling, I’m climbing
Through the trees towards the sun
I’m choking, I’m breathing
A heavy heart I carry on

Without rest my legs grow tired
How much could my eyes have lied?
I saw you, my image of hope

I’m walking, I’m running
But your figure never nears
I’m speaking, I’m talking
Though my words you never hear

Along dream paths I find my way
Stumble and I fall away
Down hillside towards the light

You were made for summer mornings
You were made for days like these, these, these
You know you know you were

You were with me in my slumber
When I wake up
I know, know, know, I know I know you’re not there

I’m floating, I’m sinking
Will your presence ever come?
I’m hurting, I’m healing
Follow me to waking world

Sleep comes like a dream to me
Through my eyes I cannot see
Your vision is inside my head

You were made for twilight evenings
You were made for nights like these, these, these
You know you know you were

As the songbird sings a farewell
And I look up
I know, know, know
I know I’m following her
