about

Written in January 2013 and first released in April, the song depicts how a situation can be haunting and relentless until it is cleared up. It contains powerful metaphors and imagery, and is now accompanied by a much larger arrangement, adding strings, drums, an organ and a choir to the original piano and voice.

lyrics

I look across the field
To see what the future holds
You're all I see

I cast my mind back
Many a day
To hear you call my name

Every time
I close my eyes
You're staring back
You're staring right through me

Every time
I try to shut you out
The only sound I hear
Is your breathing in my ear

I run across the field
Sniffing all the roses
But all I taste are corpses
Rotting in the ground

I wish I could feel
There was another way
But I gotta face the truth
The sun sets on the other side of you

Every time
I close my eyes
You're staring back
You're staring right through me

Every time
I try to shut you out
The only sound I hear
Is your breathing in my ear

*Instrumental*

Every time
I close my eyes
You're staring back
You're staring right through me

Every time
I try to shut you out
The only sound I hear
Is your breathing in my

Every time
I close my eyes
You're staring back
You're staring right through me

Every time
I try to shut you out
The only sound I hear
Is your breathing in my ear
