lyrics

here they come
the songs of spring
lookin’ stupid
hand in hand with “I give up”
and “I love you”
their bags are filled up
bursting at the seams
with the sweetest melodies

in full bloom they hide the graves, softly erasing
all the dreams and the love and the lives it cost us
to sew them in the first place
it’s little consolation
to be sleeping in your leaves
if we’re unable to retain the memories
that would’ve helped us believe
the smell of fresh cut grass
squirming underneath my lamp
I ask “In 1996 were you with me
at summer camp?”
but it just turns back into sand
on a beach in Michigan
whispering “It’s ok”

that my childhood is fading
no longer scares me
what truly hurts
is that it no longer scares me
i’ve grown so numb to so much since then
in order to make it to “the end”
but what happens then?
20 years from now
can I still feel my lovers skin?
still love her like I love her now
remember why I loved her then
can I hear the blurry melody
that built this life for us
up in the world tree

that our dreams are not lies
is our holiest magic and
if we’re really fools to the end
then how can the end be so fucking tragic?
It killed me when I heard your mother say
on her death bed
"It’s all going too fast"
edelweiss never lasts
our bags are gonna burst
as our towers turn to flowers
the kingdom’s gonna crack
ripping up our life-long bowers
as the refuse of our lives
withers and fades like fresh cut grass
around the world tree

dance with me
around the world tree
