lyrics

Oh my darling, I’m so sorry,
But it already is morning,
You can’t wake up from this moment,
But this is all we have, why don’t you want to own it?

Let it all be still, let it all be stilled.
I have held my hopes to dearly,
I have seen myself too clearly.

Let it all be still, you’ll still be here right?
I’m not going anywhere, just closing my eyes.

Let it all be still, like I’m in a museum.
Move around observe, a passing visitor
My life deserted, free to leave,
Free to sit and be and think ‘what could it all possibly mean?’

..But isn’t it beautiful, why can’t you behold it?

There’s too many names, in the hall of fame
They died young from too much movement.
It displaced them.

Don’t let me go like them,
Darwin keeps at me for progress,
There’s another way, ends in the same place,
You just lie
Very very very very still

Let it all be…
Leave my body…
Let it all be…
