Grief

Music and Lyrics by Harmony James

I used to love these hours
I’d rouse on you when the sound was turned up way too loud
Pour you another cup
Swat you away when you’d get that look
I held your weakened hand
Tried not to cry with your raging pain
You were my guiding light
Sat wide awake every tear stained night.

Chorus: When did the paint on these walls start peeling?
Now I’m noticing the mouldy ceiling
These tyres are bald and I haven’t checked the oil
I went for space, now there’s no-one calling
Right when I’m feeling myself falling
Which of our friends were yours and which were mine?
Nothing feels worth my time, everyone’s gonna die anyway

I used to feel alright
I never did fail to catch your eye
Lately I don’t see that girl
Just a worn out face up against the world

Chorus

I used to feel alright
We used to love these hours
I held your weakened hand
I gave away your things
Everyone’s gonna die
We’re all gonna die some day
