Who We Are

You only feel it when it's lost
Getting through still has a cost
Quietly, it slips through your fingers love
Falling from you drop by drop

What I had left here
I just held it tight
So someone with your eyes
Might come in time

To hold me like water
Or Christ
Hold me like a knife
We're born at night

So much of our lives
Is just carving through the dark
To get so far
And the hardest part

Is who we are
It's who we are
You and I burned out our steam
Chasing someone else's dream

How can something be so much heavier
But so much less than what it seems
Darling we sacrificed
We gave our time to something undefined

This phantom life
It sharpens like an image
But it sharpens like a knife
We're born at night

So much of our lives
Is just carving through the dark
To get so far
And the hardest part

Is who we are
It's who we are
You only feel it when it's lost
Getting through still has its cost

Quietly, it slips through your fingers love
Falling from you drop by drop
