so close / so far

i never thought
i'd live to be this age
i never thought
i'd learn to wake every day

i promise
stop trying to move closer
one wrong step and everything's over
nothing should last forever

just one slow dance, and i'll let go
i'll give you back
just let me know
to that purple night that promises rest
i'll return you to the bed that is your home

the reeds by the river collapse you
nobody deserves to have you
you belong to the night, and not me
i'll bite my tongue, fireflies deserve to be free
