lyrics

I disconnected
I found the exit down
Left undetected
I guess you’d say
I’m checked out now

And I was standing outside when you called
Yeah I was just about to drown my phone
Like a lonely hermit
Or maybe just split town
Run off and join the circus

You first suggested
I was digging in a hole
And you suspected
That I was headed for a fall

That was when the storm took out my lights
And I was forced to stay inside that night
The Santa Annas blowing
You were the only thought
That ever kept me going

And you turned it round
You talked me down

The heart’s electric
An unprotected route
I need a method
Unplug forget somehow

But long before you’d found your own way out
Disappeared from all the wires and clouds
And just kept going
Beyond the reaches of
The microwaves and modems

And that helped me ground
Yeah you turned it round
You turned it round
You talk me down

And I had nothing left to patch my roof
And I sat there confronting my own truth
The gutters overflowing
You were the only thought
That ever kept me going

You never let them affect you
Like they nothing to connect to
It’s like your spirit is see-through
And I see you

I had bad credit
Did not inherit much
If I couldn’t mend it
I was indebted fucked

But even when the lights all came back on
The only one that mattered was the dawn
Upon the landing
Where I could see your silhouette was standing

You never let them affect you
Like they nothing to connect to
It’s like your spirit is see-through
And I see you
