Half-awake in a building that was never even there
It's a shock to find yourself living
In a moment unshared
Half a story is ending
Half your life unprepared
Half of nothing is nothing
Half of everything is fair.

Meet me tonight halfway
The skeletons are scared
They're standing in the half light
Midway up the stairs.
A trail leads from your bedside
We'll take to the air
Meet me tonight halfway
Midway up the stairs.

Half away from your bedroom
Half eye-open stare
There's a world in your head
Where your sleeping heart is repaired
Half a story is beginning
Half of life is a dare
Half of living is dreaming
Half of everything is spare.


from Silver Cords, released November 23, 2018
