about

Those are tap shoes.

lyrics

You persist like an image burned onto a screen
A hollowed-out negative ghost in the machine
Unchanged, unchanging, staring me down:
Here’s who you are, here’s who you’ve been, here’s what you’ve done
Here’s what’s gone

You remove yourself, a silhouette
Of what I lost, what I’ll never forget
I leave your message unopened, keep your face on my phone:
Here’s who you are, here’s who you’ve been, try to move on
Here’s what’s gone

And in this house some specter haunts
the corners of my vision. I wonder what it wants.
And in this room I sleep alone
and dream of dying, everything unknown
And in this night the lights come on
as if to whisper:
Here’s what’s gone
Here’s what’s gone
