lyrics

Let Me Stay
Sister, where’d you go?
I’ve gone and fallen off my horse again.
Summer’s ending; I’m remembering
everything we could’ve been.

But those forever feelings never stay.
I had a center once; she went away.

Was the weight of my darkness too great?
Call me the light – I will drive those demons away!

Brother, where’d you go?
I’ve wandered off and lost my way again.
My feeding frenzies
leave me feeling empty nine times out of ten.

Those phosphorescent petals always fade.
You said you loved me once, but something changed.

Was the strain of my sadness too great?
Call me the rain – I am here to clean the slate.

Brief moments of bravery,
relapses into cowardice.
Glimpses of profundity,
dances with the precipice.

Retreating back into your slippery shell—
safe within the dismal diving bell.

Well, instead of going into hiding
and pushing everyone who loves you away,
what if you opened up your doors
and let me stay?
