Track Name: Xerxes - I Can Feel You Standing There
Your voice is echoing outside my window
The sound of you breathing with your eyes closed
Your heart's rhythm, its decay as it pulls you away
I've got December tangled in my throat so you can't hear me shout
Her hands are holding me down while you paint into my chest
a portrait of you, where your love used to rest
She won't let you walk back without tripping you up
while I hold my hands out just to feel your touch
I can feel you there, but I can't see you anywhere
You taught me to keep the memory close
like it would keep me warm when the sun drowned
But every day is a cold punch knocking me out
and every night as sleepless as my doubt
So how do I sleep when in my dreams I can't breathe?
And how can I believe what my eyes can't see?
I loved for so long that it changed my heart's beat
The chill bled me blue and slowed each crash and pound
What's left to recall when the stars are too dark to see
Track Name: Xerxes - But I Don't See You Anywhere
I'd rather see you as the bright light that you used to be
than the faded star leading me astray
With misguided steps, I was losing myself
And you, you were always walking away
The memory of what could have been is all I have haunting me
tearing out the stitches in the wounds of my heart that used to be
Every rain cloud paints my name in the dead sky, and I
I can't move on when the downpour's drowning me out
The winter stiffens my skin straight, so i can stand up while my faith evaporates
but my shoulders are weighed down by the taste of your name
I thought it would be so easy to spit it out, like love never touched my tongue
but it's stuck in the back my throat and its cold and alone and it's
dead and it's gone
Broken, bound down, faded, numb
