lyrics

He seems much smaller now
Knee high to the man that I once loved
I always prided myself on
Always seeing the beauty that's in you
I still do

It was a tuesday when she called
Her mind betraying her again
But I can feel her breathing
No, death is not her only friend

So light a candle
Join the vigil
We're all holding hands
With phantoms of our past selves

All this time I thought you were digging your way out
You were saving space in the graveyard
(x2)

So light a candle
Join the vigil

We were some sort of cosmic glitch
A blinding glimpse at divinity
But now we're galaxies away
In the same damn midwestern state

She's lying under the newborn sun
Begging for it's strength to enter her skin
We'll all be dust in the end
Don't turn to stone while you're waiting

So light a candle
Join the vigil
We're all holding hands
With phantoms of our past selves

All this time I thought you were digging your way out
You were saving space in the graveyard
(x2)

So light a candle
Join the vigil
We're all holding hands
With phantoms of our past selves

All this time I thought you were digging your way out
You were saving space in the graveyard
(x2)

So light a candle
