Signs

  • Two ravens in the old oak tree, one for you and one for me
    Bluebells in the late December, I see signs now all the time
    The last time we slept together, there was something that was not there
    You never wanted to alarm me but I'm the one that's drowning now

    I could sleep forever these days because in my dreams I see you again
    But this time fleshed out fuller face in your confirmation dress
    It was so like you to visit me to let me know you were OK
    It was so like you to visit me, always worrying about someone else

    At your funeral I was so upset, so upset,
    In your life you were larger than this
    Statuesque

    I see signs now all the time that your not dead your sleeping
    I believe in anything that brings you back home to me Writer/s: Russell Lissack, Kele Okereke
