lyrics

I thought I saw a blinking light
beyond the shore, inside the room
behind your eyes, where old trees bloom
and silhouettes of lovers sigh
In the tape deck of your hatchback
she sang of love lost in perfect time
out of nothing, into nothing
like images from satellites

I broke the song
when I held the notes too long

When you left me, I knew you loved me
You pulled the rip cord when I was bound
by blind emotion, I was broken
before I landed on the ground
Now every hour I'm digging deeper
to the center of the earth
past the diamonds and the anchors
and the loved ones in the dirt

I am not afraid
of keeping what you gave

Serena, I release you
I know I loved imperfectly
but I can finally hear you singing
like a kite without a string

And I am not afraid
In every moment, we are remade
