lyrics

To the headstone, where the photograph shows the two of us laying there with our bones exposed.
The Calla Lillies are in full bloom again.
A reminder of how things grow and die.

My eyes have changed from blue to green. I trust to believe in a living ghost that I’ve made out of me.

And the best of friends despite the distance between.
The words and actions frayed us stitch by stitch.
One year later, the soles of my feet are cleaner than my soul.

My eyes have changed from blue to green. I trust to believe in a living ghost that I’ve made out of me.

To the cemetery walls, like gargoyles on patrol.
I am no weather drain but I am used to rain, I’ve been a vessel for every storm and as much as I reinforce those maple doors, the rain keeps getting in.

My eyes have changed from blue to green. I trust to believe in a living ghost that I’ve made out of me.

The broken tiles I’ve rearranged into a mosaic pattern. The cement that I’ve never needed to use.
