Pitch and Resin

from Varuna by The Republic Of Wolves



Back when we wore the dirt 
and you didn't hurt 
and they named constellations after us 
I'd heard you almost died 
and the fault was mine, 
So that day my heart became untied. 
But you said, "Sometimes love is all you get, 
So you'd better make it stretch." 
I believe that, I just haven't seen it yet. 
And I never got my way 
because I never saw your face 
Just a blue charade 
the shadow of a season we'd betrayed. 

So I'll be stored up 
Like a relic, healing illness from a money box. 
And you'll be blooming right outside
and finally living all those verdant dreams 
that I couldn't see. 

We shot off all our flares 
as though we didn't care 
And watched them fade into the air. 

You must have known by then 
that all we had was spent 
On running from our bitter end. 

So we'll be sprawled out 
Like mosaics, filling wall space in a crumbling house 
Until we smoke out all the stray light 
And finally teach it to stay 
Because God knows that we need some steadying. 

Some day we'll be setting suns 
Watching everything we've done 
From a bed we'd shared 
but never had the chance to get up from.

Still I never left your side 
because it never did feel right. 
I just hope you don't feel sorry for a damn thing 
when you die.
