lyrics

If you wonder why
your heart is broken
just ask yourself:
did you have to turn out the lights?
and I didn’t even tell you I could see in the dark
maybe because I can’t?

and I know it’s true
as it was

can you imagine what we bury at night?
when the sun goes down and nowhere is anywhere without a streetlight
all the dust
beneath our beds…

what are you hiding in the damp?
cramped, cracked, dark, and lost...
what have you left behind the moon?
creeping like a frost...

what we bury at night.
