Post Funeral

Hold your breath 

Make your peace

This radio has fallen silent

This newsreporter's caught speechless


I don't feel this pain

When I'm not breathing


We just fall apart

For no reason


Seas and oceans open wide

It makes no difference

Side by side or inbetween

It'd still feel like galaxies

Separating you and me


It's time to let go of

Childhood dreams

Because now I see

Breathing in will never be easy
