lyrics

We were born fully-formed, a two-hearted chest to be treasured
A lung to belong to, a song to be sung as the measure.

I still see our ghosts board the train as we drive past the station
The wind carries whispers like weights through the first conversation.

And in the cursed name of romance, we should abandon all our plans
No more thirst for flowing time, we would need no more rewind
Grab your coat, I have the keys
Do not reason with me please
There is nothing more to say, let's run away.

We'll always live on the breeze, cross seas, travel constellations
Buzz with the bees, pull rabbits from sleeves of magicians.

You'll still see our ghosts board the train as you drive past the station
The wind carries widows to wakes in your imagination.

And in the cursed name of romance, we should abandon all our plans
No more thirst for flowing time, we would need no more rewind
Grab your coat, I have the keys
Do not reason with me please
There is nothing more to say, let's run away.
