about

lyrics

I remember watching you dancing, letting loose, light forming a halo round your head, and you laughing at nothing. You were two weeks out from leaving our hometown, and when I mentioned what I had meant to say, you tugged at my shirt.

I remember watching you dancing, letting loose, light forming a halo round your head, and you laughing at something. You were two weeks out from leaving our hometown, and when I mentioned what you had always thought, you tugged at my shirt. I was laughing at nothing. You pulled at my shirt, you were laughing at nothing.

I remember watching you dancing, letting loose. Light all around you.
