lyrics

I haven’t heard that song in a while
We used to sing it every evening
Feels strange now to hear it again

"at our toes, dewy and gross..."

It used to mean so many things to me
But a new one appeared this evening
So wordless in all its speaking:

I will not back down

I will not back down
I will not back down, so simple and proud
How beautiful could a sentence sound?

I will not back down

I haven’t felt alive in a while
The formation of geese became like vultures
Preying upon our corpses

I used to dream so many ways
Now I only dream of persisting
Of day after day existence

I will not back down
I will not back down
I will not back down, so simple and proud
How beautiful could a sentence sound?
I will not back down

Deep in the stars, or wherever you are
I need to find, I need to find you
Deep in the stars, or wherever you are
No need for alarm, my own, my heart
Though I can’t find the words to express it in turn
My lonely nerves bring no comfort
Deep in the stars, or wherever you are
Please pull me up
I need your arm
