Here Lies Our Pulse

When I close my eyes, I want you to come up for air
And when I turn around, I expect you to be there
If I clear my mind, I wonder what you’ll say to me
I’ll try to reach you through my heart, wherever you may find yourself

Are you in the past now
Are you in the past now
How do I get back there?
I still don’t know what you meant that day

When I feel my pulse, I can’t help but think it slows me down
If I could shake my body off, I could merge with you into the ground
But I get the sense that something I did pissed you off
Was it my conscience or was it the message I was to receive

You’re not around now
The years have gone by and
I was hoping you’d guide me
I can’t feel you near me anymore

If I meet my death on the day that I may least expect
I hope that you’ll be there, to greet me and to settle this
I hope you’ll understand; I only meant to capture you
What was left of who you were absorbed into the ones you loved

Are you in the past now
Are you in the past now
How do I get back there?
I still don’t know what you meant that day
