Where are you? Where are we now?
Red eyes. White rivers.
It’s not just where you put your foot.
You keep your mouth open;
Try to find the right words

I saw you standing there
It took you so long to find out
An avalanche of tears, of memories

How do you feel the light?
Won’t you tell your dreams…
No time, anytime.
A crack and a creak in the trees.

I never saw you looking back
It took you so long to find out
An avalanche of tears, of memories

Where are they? Where are you now?
Red eyes. Purple veils.
It’s not just where you lay your head.
You keep your mouth close;
Try to heal the right wounds

How do you face the dark?
Won’t you tell your dreams…
No time, anytime.
These trees will never take you back.
