lyrics

Shadows for eyelids,
Broken down shutters for lips.
Spine aligns to allow time to travel through…

The broken open windows of your chest.
Rest awhile on this isle of expectations unrealized.
Eye of the storm, we were reborn that night when our ships sailed,
For the east coast, to make the most of those western gales that blew,
That blew our windows right off their hinges.
They rattled and they shook and baby, we shook too.
Light came in through the cracks and settled like dew on your skin.
Turned our faces to the sun and we remembered to begin,
To begin the tales that tie us together.

Shadows for eyelids,
Broken shutters for lips.
Spine aligns to allow time to travel through.
