about

This song is about losing someone, but being able to carry on through life.

lyrics

As weak as me, hidden in the dark. I can’t breathe, I want to come back to the start. You can’t imagine the void, I can feel the silence, I am alone. Cut off from the edge of the world, talking with my remaining thoughts. I need to cry, I could fill an ocean; but I see the light, I know that you’re alive. I want to die, so that I don’t suffer; but I can’t help, I hate being useless. Light it up. I’m on my knees shouting at no one. How can I survive without you? I am running in circles. Sail on, leave the shore behind. Are those cliffs made to conceal the lantern that’s already fading? This shipwreck isn’t meant to last longer, light will save us wanderers. I keep digging a hole in the water. I can see it now, it shines brighter: let me embrace the warmth of the lantern. I’ve never been so alone before. I am so far from relief but maybe there’s hope. Nothing will bring you back here with me, but there’s more to explore beyond this dark infinity.
