(Dedicated to M.N. & M.L. & A.J.)


I can only think back to all I’ve known
Mind starts to collect memories I own
Back before dirt and back before skin and bone
Just trying to get this ever-receding gap to close
And we all come back to Dust & Glass
Before the time comes, is that too much to ask?

And I fear bringing a child into this world
I don’t wanna leave a little boy or girl

With the life I’ve had, because the life I’ve had
Has left me thinking on my end, and I won't pretend
That we can take it back, that we can erase the past
Even though I wish we had, I wish we had

More time to grow with each other
Oh I wish it didn’t have to end like every other—life
And I imagine us in 100 years just the same
We don’t feel the fire, we just walk fearless through the flames

And I don’t see the reality anymore
All I see is fear and escaping what we’d fallen for
And I wanna get back to where we were
And I want it to last forever

I won’t look back to Dust & Glass, cause all we’ve had, is all we’ve asked
And that is that and we can’t take it back
We've said all the things that we shouldn’t have, and now we’re left with our shattered halves
It’s all come back to Dust & Glass, and all things that live shall pass

And I think about you every day of my life
And It doesn’t change that I miss you all the time
And it seems that life has no reason or rhyme
But I’m sure we’ll see it all in season’s time...
