lyrics

We're standing by the river
Your eyes are black circles and I picture you in gray
The call sounds off the water
and I wait for your reflection in the shallow waves

In your songs you sound so weary
but I see you in the clearing and say
"Don't cry, ‘cause it's never getting any easier"

It's fourteen years today
I'd have so many questions if I had the chance
Still the call spins through the valleys
It's loud and it is ugly
and it draws me in

In your songs you sound so weary
but I see you in the clearing and say
"Don't cry, ‘cause it's never getting any easier"

Was that the last time I would get to see you
screaming at the light of day
Could it be the first time
there's nothing for you to say
Maybe in my next life I'll be able to stop and turn away
Or maybe this is it
and I'm wasting all I have on the gray

I'll see you by the river
with eyes of black forever
and a coat of pallid gray
The call sounds off the water
and I wait for your reflection
in the shallow waves
