Lyrics

play I don't like walking around this old and empty  
play So hold my hand, I'll   with you my dear
play The stairs   as you sleep, it's keeping me awake
play It's the house   you to close your eyes

play And some days I can't even   myself
play It's   me to see you this way

play Because though the truth   vary this
play Ship will carry our   safe to shore

play There's an old   in my head that's holding me back
play Well tell her that I   our little talks
play Soon it will be  
play And   with our past
play We used to play outside when we were  
play And full of life and full of  

play Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
play Your   is playing   on you my dear

play Because though the truth may vary this
play Ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

play Don't listen to a word I say
play The screams all sound the same
play Though the truth may vary this
play Ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

play You're gone, gone, gone away
play I watched you'd  
play All that's left is a   of you
play Now we're torn, torn, torn apart
play There's nothing we can do
play Just let me go we'll meet   soon.

play Now wait, wait, wait for me
play Please   around
play I'll see you when I fall asleep

play Don't listen to a word I say
play The screams all sound the same
play Though the truth may vary this
play Ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

play Don't listen to a word I say
play The screams all sound the same
play Though the truth may vary this
play Ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

play Though the truth may vary this
play Ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
play Though the truth may vary this
play Ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

The song is about a relationship. It's about a couple and the husband passed away and it's from the conversation between the two of them. We don't know if she's going crazy or if someone's actually there. We've kind of been inspired by people that lived in my house. This old couple that lived there for 30 years. The woman passed away, so it was kind of different."
