I want to drink this cool night in
Let it burrow in all my pores
Take my pulse and make it sing

(Lost souls are in the stars
The ones gone nova
The northern lights)

I inhale chill alpine air
My lungs burn like living
I’m sightless and weightless

(We are all just floating
We are in a void
Why don’t you scream?)

I am an animal
I am a newborn
I am your soulmate

(I am lost, so find me
Freezedry my tears
They are precious)

My lips are parted
Our hands are woven
We are dancing

(You know how to kiss
You are like a flightless bird
I could never be so beautiful)

You know incantations
I can speak in tongues
We could make music

(Let us call to the others
Make a wish on them
Their evenstar still lives)

Blue-and-purple creeps
I feel blood flowing
Your skin is of paper

(We can only go
If we go together
The world's shrinking)

Cover me in sheets
I want to be a ghost
Unmake me
