about

written by Rachel Erin Robinson

lyrics

binding
a tether is tied
tied around your finger
it's a lie this time
after
there is a light
careful how you hold it
where you shine this time

lonely
you learn how to make
a world that you can live in
children for you to save
tracing
the innocent lines
then paint your favorite colors
yellow, black and white

Vivian, he borrowed from a ghost to make you live
painted in the colors of your face then traced again

tying
end on to end
then climbing out the window
brace for the sweet descent
meanwhile, safely inside
no one knows your secret
how you gave them life

butterfly armies will fight for you
by the side of a girl who never knew
how you wish that it were true

Vivian, he borrowed from a ghost to make you live
painted in the colors of your face then traced again
whispering the stories from newspapers that he read
scribbled in the tenets of philosophies unsaid

losing
a tether untied
falling from your finger
to this life you've left behind
after
there is a light
careful how you hold it
where you shine this time
