lyrics

THE VALLEYS FILL WITH LAVENDER



I see you everywhere I go.

That's you on the train to nothing.



You left a gap filled with ice and snow.

I heard your voice breaking in the thaw.

I cold flee far, a migrant bird

but everywhere I hear your song.



Why did we leave you sleepless

in a house filled with guns?

Why did we quit on you

one by one by one by one?



Speeding in a burning car

you appear alongside me,

surfing the flames at sixty-five

miles an hour.



Speeding in a burning car

you appear alongside me,

brown hills turn green at sixty-five

miles an hour.



(One by one by one)



Brother,



We light the candles without you,

we sing the songs without you,

haunted by the name of the daughter you'll never have.



I close my eyes too late to catch you walking over the cusp.



Your purple light recedes into the arctic.
