about

Written before literally everything caused this much anxiety. Sorry about that.

lyrics

Today, today, your old life comes calling
Today, today, your old fears come crawling around
Today, today, it finds you and reminds you
Today, today is every yesterday

Did you think we’d forgotten?
Oh no no—we’ve been biding our time
All of us unaddressed regrets, all of us outstanding debts
Did you think you’d get away?
Oh no no—nobody does
All of us lingering requests, all of us uninvited guests
All of us—all of what was

Today, today, your old life comes calling
Today, today, your old fears come crawling around
Today, today, it finds you and reminds you
Today, today is every yesterday

Did you think you’d sleep tonight?
Oh no no—you can lie awake
All of us unforgiven wrongs, all of us half-remembered songs
Did you think we’d fade away?
Oh no no—we’re here for keeps
All of us casual remarks, all of us unacknowledged sparks
All of us pulled from the deep

We are the voices of the bad dreams
the missed calls, the stuck trains
We are the ghosts that flicker out behind your smile
We are the scorched-earth credit score
the last trip to the liquor store
the ancient photo posted on your profile
We are the shadows stretched at twilight
We are the day becoming night
We are we are we are we are we are—

Today, today, your old life comes calling
Today, today, your old fears come crawling around
Today, today, it finds you and reminds you
Today, today is every yesterday
