lyrics

At the corner of my sight, there you are again
Standing on the porch, or the lawn in the wind
A fleeting form in white or grey,
Then you vanish with a sigh, you’re just a blink – in an unbelieving eye.

Do you see me, do you know
When you vanish, where you go?
Do you climb the stairs and stay
In your home of many rooms
Is it always dark, or is it ever day?

Did you leave here and fight to set the sail
Climb the growing waves and face the coming gale?
Did the halyard part and canvas start to rend,
And in your time for one last thought, did you think – “this is the end”?

Or did you slip and fall that icy ledge
That you’re climbing now so surely?
Did you notice not the waves that thundered at your back,
Was there even time for one last thought before the world went black?

And do you see me, do you know
When you vanish, where you go?
Do you climb the stairs and stay
In your home of many rooms
Is it always dark, or is it ever day?

Or do you never get to know?
Is there truth to what they say -
That you carry on as if alive, not white or grey
But like it’s any other… ordinary day?

Through the empty halls I walk,
Every room, in and out
But in the mind there lurks the smallest doubt…
And as I face another year, what makes me think – that I’m still here?

Do you see me, do you know
When you vanish, where you go?
I climb the stairs and stay
And in my home of many rooms
It’s sometimes dark… and sometimes it is day.
