about

For Aileen and Joe

lyrics

I find my arms holding myself
and a sudden inhale of the coldest breath
fingers stitch on second skin
I'm sheltering in the wind

I'd thread the needle to the top of the world and scream
Don't forget him
Hold him for me
While I can only hold myself

There is a peace
A certain clarity
On the edge of everything your hand finds me
So I'm gathering the strength from the love that you have left
And I'm crying in the water and laughing to myself
And I'm listening to the questions coming from my second skin
And I know the only answer is to keep remembering

I'd thread the needle to the edge of the world and scream
Don't forget him
Hold him for me
While I can only hold myself
