lyrics

[Verse 1]
Dear, for you
I would do
Things that I won't admit to
The past seeps through
In all I do
And I bet you the earth that that's true

[Bridge]
Oh darling, you're all I am living for now
For now
Only a relic of
The only thing they couldn't take
But you're the story

[Verse 2]
Won't fight, I'm theirs
I am scared
Guess that's why I'm here and not there
No-one can understand how this got so far
And now they want to know where you are

[Bridge 2]
Oh here the ground is a wasted, charred metaphor
People are nothing now, just herded and tossed to the sea
But you could be the story

[Middle 8]
There is a point, in my life
Where I will have to say here, I'm ready to fight
No credentials and failing knees
But I'll be ready to fight, and for you
There is a point, in our lives
Where we will have to say no, I'm ready to fight
No credentials, no you with me
But I'll be ready to fight, and for you

[Harmony layer 1]
(The past's parting, the weight of the weather is bearing down
This is the making of, something unwritten in me, if I'm the story)
[Repeat]

[Harmony layer 2]
(With just one body, I'm not ready to fight
I'm not the story)
