from The Life That I Have (2020) - EP by The Magic Lantern

Gentle face
How I need you when I make mistakes
You put things in their rightful place
So we can go to sleep

And i’ll put the mountains back together at your feet
Piece by piece up until to the snowy peaks
While all the world sweats concrete

Tender one
I had a dream where all I did was run
And they knew what I had done
Please help me go to sleep

I pulled the plug and let the oceans drain away
We can cross them again some rainy day
When all our fears our hearts betray

We might as well
We might as well
Start over again

Silver tongue
Whisper words from all the songs we’ve sung
You know what we could become
So sing me back to sleep

And we've swapped the sky for a glowing tiny screen
Head down walking, trapped in the machine babe
So say farewell to the Holocene

We might as well
We might as well
Start over again
