For Never After

They settled down to live inside the shameless carcass of their vagrant dream.

"This is ours."
"This is mine."

They cried to sleep, and woke up to the torrents of empathy pouring out of each other's arms.

Method Act

Now will you take your seats
And be quiet please
I need all eyes on me
As I try to explain

This is my final act
So I'll need your full attention
And for my final trick
I'll make everyone who loves me disappear

But I won't know how to bring them back...

So well you've played me for a fool,
But, uh, I'm okay with that.
It's an honour sharing this dance with you
And we were by far my favourite act.

Quiet/We Are An Obstacle

Let's float into the sky
Change into contrail vapours
Kiss the heavens goodnight
And fade into a blazing sunrise.

With Ash Raining Down On Our Sleepy Sleepy Town

Quiet nights remind us of how we once said it didn't matter if we didn't get the freedoms we were owed, for we had found each other, and we were people worth keeping for the rest of our lives.

Quiet nights make us wonder where we are now, and where the people worth keeping have been lost on the road that led us here, and whether we will find them again, and what it will take.

Please, just let me stay a while
And wrap me in your scented heats
Trap me gently in your passing ghosts
and call your victories my defeats.

Take his name when you touch my face
Leave me lying in his place
Say "darling, you were always mine.
All you needed was a little time."

Give me one night of secret love
And tear my skin when I feel most vain
Let this yearning turn to dust
If it isn't the right kind of pain.

Then I guess I'll live with my mistakes
And we'll both sleep in this bed I've made
And when the time has passed, I'll think of when we fell.
And I'll cry, yes I'll cry. "My Lover, Goodbye.
At least,just once, I could say I knew you well."
