Faded Paper Figures – Breathing Lyrics

Now you’re gone,
but your breath
is everywhere I still want you to be.1
Chicago fires2
so full of death
could never keep your spirit far from me.3
Falling off the glyphs,
nothing corresponds to what you mean,4
and every word is set aside.
Five degrees below,
far too cold to walk into the sea,
and no one sees the rising tide.5

Now we’re breathing as one, like two rays of the sun6
Now we’re breathing as one, like two rays of the sun

Translate the code
but not the words,
keep patching up the holes with love and bliss.7
Old dream mine roads
and coffin clothes,
no love escapes this last necropolis.8
Let me come inside,
keep me breathing through these former lives9
in places no one ever finds.
Calling up the past,
nothing left if all these memories
are buried deep inside your mind.10

Now we’re breathing as one, like two rays of the sun
Now we’re breathing as one, like two rays of the sun

Egypt had it right, your long eyelashes glide,
like irises, Osirises are guarding me tonight.11
Whispering these signs, numbers in my mind,
so let it be, just come to me like jackals in the night.12
