lyrics

v.1
Sometimes, you’re in need
of some kind, of souvenir
to arrange on your sheets
to prove that we lay here

v.2
Sometimes, you’re in need
of a prompt you fail to hear
You bit your lip and down the side of your bed
a moment disappears

CHORUS:
Well I’m just glad to be here to ask
One day we’ll learn not to burn our backs
(Don’t forget the past)

v.3
The bulb above your bed
sends out a faulty S.O.S.
The wires don’t connect,
and you send ‘S.O.M.’ out instead
I think you’re trying to say ‘sometimes
oh yeah sometimes
Sometimes you’re in need

v.4
Then I saw a tiny scar
and you, looking vulnerable yet calm
And the horizon was what I saw as a scar
and it was you who held the world, upon your arms

CHORUS:
Well I’m just glad to be here to ask
One day we’ll learn not to burn our backs
I’ll watch yours, while you collect the ash!
