lyrics

I hear your voice ringing against
The window pane and pull the blanket tighter
Around my tired hopes that the next footsteps
Will be yours

I think of all the times
I should have touched your lips and hands
But now it’s clear that I
Didn’t love you enough then

All my dreams and hopes
And shadows and ghosts
Are and ever will be
For you

We cannot promise forever
Because we don’t know what it means
And we don’t want to cheat our love
It’s got its own time and seasons

I hear your voice ringing against
The window pane and pull the blanket tighter
Around my tired hopes that the next footsteps
Will be yours
