Silhouette

Album: Have You in My Wilderness (2015)
  • I go out to find
    The one with whom I've seen
    All hour's moons
    Once the curtains lifted
    And he said "I will swim to you"

    Language is such a play
    He called his exit, but his eyes are irresolute
    What pasts still sit today?
    I feel I'm walking around in blue

    He can hear me sing
    He can hear me sing
    Though he is far
    I'll never lose sight of him

    He turned to me then looked away
    A silhouette
    A silhouette
    Still returns to me

    I'll hand him his coat
    It's exactly where he left it long ago
    We'll fall all over floorboards
    I lose my breath just envisioning the scene
    Mysteries that wake up late, the table's set
    And the painting of his face
    No time to hesitate
    I cede all my love and play your abandoned fool

    Though he is far
    I'll never lose

    He turned to me
    He turned to me and looked away

    A silhouette
    A silhouette returns to me
    A silhouette

    A silhouette
    A silhouette returns to me
    A silhouette

    A silhouette returns to me Writer/s: JULIA HOLTER
