Track Name: Lights Out (Curtain Close)
A bitter soundtrack
A broken light
Another lover
So new and so bright
What would it take to take it back?
Create another chapter, to reignite
It’s never too late
Until it is

It was never so easy to find some clarity
Than when I was with you
We’re walking away
But it feels like and never is
Until it’s you
With your auburn hair
Like winter leaves
To find another
Another way

Marry me
We’ll run away
There is a spotlight
The curtain closed

There is a clarity that’s left in these words
That’s left in these in these words
A naked honesty that I will never forget
I remember your face
Why can’t I please remember my own
If it’s the last thing I leave

Marry me
We’ll walk away
There is a spotlight
There is a change

There is an answer that I chose to ignore
Because it’s the one I fear the most

Lights out
Curtain close
Remove the spotlight
Remove my clothes

A bitter soundtrack
A broken light
I suffer through my wounds

Another day, another night alone
Another day, the city awaits

Lights out
Curtain close
There is a door, there is a place
That I have walked through so many times before
