lyrics

I lost my name a while ago.
I guess your ear took the word in apology,
that ever since, the rain is on my roof constantly.

And that I try to keep the garden green,
though the tiles, they make me feel blue.
My brush in paint lost its colour over you.

I’m sitting on the doorstep without a name,
laughing ‘till I cannot breathe without a frame.
I thought we would last, I hoped for better days.
But our house collapsed, she lost her name.

Corpses stare at me,
when I attempt to catch the sky in my hand,
just to see if I can hold, what they think I can’t.

For the one who stares out of the window,
will never see a glancing face,
by the reflection of the mind that weighs.

I’m sitting on the doorstep without a name,
laughing ‘till I cannot breathe without a frame.
I thought we would last, (laughing ‘till I cannot breathe)
I hoped for better days. (without a frame)
But our house collapsed, (I thought we would last)
she lost her.. (I hoped for better days)
