I haven’t heard you breathing for months now
Does that mean that you’re no longer drinking in
The oxygen in this sea of air that I’m drowning in
Or are you swallowing it one drop at a time
So as to drain it for the rest of us

Or did you fill up your lungs and blow out the candles
Of desire for a new world in darkness
You’re left with wishes and the smoke rising to heaven

Or are you exhaling it all in melody
So quiet that we can’t hear it across the sea
As fortissimo as your voice will make it

If that’s the case, then honey
Sing your song to the world because we’re all
Standing here waiting to hear you
