Track Name: goodbye hope (mount eerie cover)
hello my air
goodbye hope
goodbye also to your ambushes
I say goodbye ghost
and watch it turn to white air
where I shine and float

hello darkest fear
goodbye eyes closed
and the lonely, lonely, lonely night
in the long shadows
I fell to my knees in tears
and said, 'sweetheart, hello'

hello my heart
yes, goodbye hope
you know we will go steady
say goodbye and know
you'll find me fanning out
my warm, unfolding hands
blindly let me go
Track Name: fall two
I take my time catching my breath
I press rewind, retrace my steps

you will not hear me fall
I will not hear you call

replace my thoughts with empty space
count every shadow on your face

I wake up on the floor
take everything and more
Track Name: ladder
I can feel you in the breeze
your spirit knocks me to my knees

and I wanted you to know
that every time it snows
the frost
spells out
your name

you're never there when I awake
or when my knees begin to shake

but I wanted to believe
you were singing in my sleep
and I
could feel
you breathe

every morning since you died
I have tried to stay alive

but you need to know I cared
even when I wasn't there

can you
still feel
this love
