Lyrics

ALWAYS AND STILL

The hand that pulled me back might be the hand I should’ve bit
Being saved can be the cruelest thing there is
When life’s a party you don’t want to go to with crowds you never fit
It’s just if you don’t go there’s something you might miss

The sunlight is slanted more than it ever has been
The night falls right on the day

And I miss the things that never happened for me
I fear the things that likely never will
I’m leaving here and you’ll forget about me
But I’ll remember you ALWAYS AND STILL

The years crashed up around me like a freeway accident
Not seeing what was coming up ahead
Alone for all that time like it was some experiment
How much farther could I go and still bring life back to the dead

The sunlight is slanted more than it ever has been
The night falls right on the day

And I miss the things that never happened for me
I fear the things that likely never will
I’m leaving here and you’ll forget about me
But I’ll remember you ALWAYS AND STILL

And I’m free, for all that word can and cannot mean
And I scream a name into the wind
And I’m in love with a secret of a you that I have seen
And I’m going down with this ship to the end

Regret comes in more colors than we knew when we were young
Lying more in what you don’t than what you do
But regret can’t change the coldness of the gods to which I’ve clung
And neither way can bring me to the place that’s close to you

And I miss the things that never happened for me
I fear the things that likely never will
I’m leaving here and you’ll forget about me
But I’ll remember you ALWAYS AND STILL
I’ll remember you ALWAYS AND STILL
I remember you…still
