were we ever living life so high
and it’d never be a pain to die
in the summer of the 2.5
in the spirit of the edelweiss

you were everything i needed
just to get me to the afterlife
we’re forever incompleted
you had freckles underneath your eyes

i’m so stunned
by the passage of time
and the wind and the sea
sharp rain on the orange trees
but we’re staying inside
on the ancient advice
that what is loved will never die


from what is loved will never die, released March 2, 2017
