about

Grief is something I'm not good with. It latches onto my soul and tries to drag me down into a bottomless pit. So I decided to chip off that piece of soul and spin it off into a bit of art, and throw that into the world for grief to grasp on to.

I miss you Eclipse. This one is for you.

lyrics

Ever since you left this town,
Things haven’t felt the same
I don’t know what to say my friend
But I know you aren’t to blame
I wish that I could hug you now
And see your little smile
Maybe I could talk to you,
Distract you for a while

I miss you more than I’d have guessed
It feels like we’d barely met
There’s so much time we lost it isn’t fair
I see your face in every crowd
I hear your voice in every sound
But then I turn to look and you’re not there
You’re not there

I feel empty like a bottle, now
And hollow like a cave
I hope that you can hear me
Through the veil of the grave
I know that you were hurting
And I’m glad that you escaped
But I wish I could have helped you try
To find another way

They say that bright stars burn out fast
And good things never really last
But that’s a lie to mask the pain we bear
I see your face in every crowd
I hear your voice in every sound
But then I turn to look and you’re not there
You’re not there

You’re not there
You’re not there
You’re not there
You’re not there
