Song Description

If you had a loved one that you could not let go of even in death, what lengths would you go to reconnect with them? This is a conceptual track following the themes of movies like "The Sixth Sense" and "What Dreams May Come".

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by themes found in movies like "The Sixth Sense", and "What Dreams May Come."

Lyrics

Verse 1:

We were living in amazing times, we made a happy home outside the box that they defined.

The very thought of you reminds me of my favorite line, in time I'll take away your miseries and make em' mine.

You were the prototype and God had made a great design, in tune like planetary beings after they aligned.

Your heart was open; eyes were open and your faith was blind, we'll age together and get better like the taste of wine.

But I'm a soldier off to war again. Do I go or do I stay, to fight the war within?

My bags are by the door my train departs at 4am, not a musician, but abroad is where my tour begins.

I have to fight the world to make you safer, in reality you never know where fate can take you.

We'll be together soon enough that was my final vow, this is not goodbye this is just goodbye for now.



Verse 2:

My return to you was bitter sweet, so much had changed, and you are not the same admittedly.

Our steps are out of rhythm moving to a different beat. Something is missing, I'm insisting that it isn't me.

I had to take it with a grain of salt, when you looked up to the sky and said it's all my fault.


You kept your feelings safe but now you're just an empty vault, we pass each other like we never had a thing at all.
You're out in public and your hand is naked ring is off. There's something crazy bout the scenery your seeming lost.

When I communicate it's crazy you won't even talk. You watch our wedding video until the screen shuts off.

I wish I knew a way to reach you in your time of need, but you don't feel my touch when I'm beneath you.

And I know have to move on but it's hard for me to leave you, cause I know that when I go it won't be possible to see you.

Verse 3:

I watch you as you lay asleep, I'm in the bedroom but beside you there's a vacancy.

I wish you'd wake up I'll just wait here like a matradee. What dreams may come to those who end their life in pain and grief?

If you only knew how heaven felt, it's got a fragrance like no flower you have ever smelled.

Beneath an open sky, open eyes, hoping I can keep this all together like the stars within Orion's belt.

I would have walked across a solar system, to hear a whisper from your lips, but now your soul is missing.

You're in a lonely place regretting all your old decisions, screaming loud and clear and sadly I can only listen.

But I refuse to let you go forever, I'll pull you out of misery so we can go together.

Enter an afterlife of paradise and sunny weather, or we could choose to do it over if the fates would let us.
