Mastered by Doug Van Sloun at Focus Mastering


Can’t even remember your name
But promise that you’ll still be here in the morning
Think that we’re both dying the same way
Promise that you’ll still be here in the morning

I can’t move on with her ghost asleep in my arms
And her side of the bed still warm

Can’t even remember her face
When she promised that she’d still be here in the morning
Thought that we were living the same way
She promised that she’d still be here in the morning

There's no way to mend anything
With wounds that won't heal
And throats that won't sing
While your ghost roams the house
Winds the clock and creaks the stairs
The burden of time
Is the cross I have to bear
