  • Everything is tragic
    It all just falls apart
    But when I look into your eyes
    It pieces up my heart

    If I only had an answer
    To put it all to bed
    I wish sometimes I could take back
    Every word I've said

    I walk back in the night alone
    Got caught up in my song
    Forgot where I was sleeping
    None of the lights were on
    I heard my mother thinking me right back into my birth
    I laughed so loud inside myself it all began to hurt

    So I turned on a picture show
    I disappeared the lines
    As memories came flooding in
    The tears blew out my eyes

    I see an elevator
    A moment I am above
    I look for you or someone
    Who can still remind me of
    The tight grip and the sun lick
    And the calm way of all things summer
    When it's all here
    And it's all new
    And you're not hungover

    Fierce and light and young
    Fierce and light and young
    When you don't know that you're wrong
    Or just how wrong you are

    My feet are always heavy
    As I inch toward the door
    I thought we'd leave this for ourselves a hundred times before
    But I guess we're always leaving even when we look the same
    And it eases me somehow to know that even this will change

    If you've still got some light in you then go before it's gone
    Burn your fire for no witness, it's the only way it's done

    Fierce and light and young
    Fierce and light and young
    Hit the ground and run
    Hit the ground and run Writer/s: ANGEL L. OLSEN
