lyrics

walked the block alone tonight
in the side of my sight
I still pass you

my sky is dust and Mars
I don’t know where you are
so I'll ask you

cold air cut with grief
too thin to breathe
I can’t grasp you

shards of a final scene
furrowed into me
oh my Matthew

can't take that you're a story
I need you to be real

can't take that you're a story
I need you to be real

our home a dusty shrine
only creaks are mine
brittle flowers

you taught me how to swim
I’m foundering
at this hour

out front we’d set the sun
loveseat for one
can I face this?

carve M into the floor
by the kitchen door
can’t erase us

can't take that you're a story
I need you to be real

can't take that you're a story
I need you to be real

I don't ask why you died
there’s just no reason for the way things go
hopes turn and cars collide
who am I to be now? I cannot know
