lyrics

Third of December, wrapped in a blanket
you sat by the window, studying silently
we drank our coffee, thought of the night gone by.

A page of your notebook, we laughed as I tried to decipher your writing
the axis was tilting, everything shifting
then I was falling.

Trying hard to hold it in
with worn-out pages that I lock myself in
I can't keep enough to feel complete
like water pouring through my fingers

Early evening, moonlight as soft as the song we were singing
counting our steps as we circled the square
everything faded away

This is the present, this is the rock that I keep in my pocket
my souvenir of this one perfect moment, do you remember?

I'm trying hard to hold it in
with worn-out pages that I lock myself in
I can't keep enough to feel complete
like water pouring through my fingers
like water pouring through my fingers.

This rock I keep in my pocket
This piece I hold.
