lyrics

Lyrics:
As I pick up on all these odd and sour things
Your fingers hush until my guard is sound asleep
And I can feel my feet leave the old wood floor
And with a few dark words, I can be transformed
But when I come back down, a part of me feels worn
And you demand to see the truth, but I can't find my source

Because you push and you pull, oh
and watch how my heartlight shakes
You know you push and you pull, oh
and I'm in a low dark place
Glowing in violet, you show me your kindness
but it takes a ghost-like shape
Because you push and you pull, oh
until I become unmade

And just like that, the clouds are gone, the sky is blue
We drink and laugh. To think that I was so blinded and cruel
And as for how your storm could bring a flood so deep
It doesn't matter anymore, cause' I'm just so relieved

Because you push and you pull, oh
and watch how my heartlight shakes
You know you push and you pull, oh
and I'm in a low dark place
Glowing in violet, you show me your kindness
but it takes a ghost-like shape
Because you push and you pull, oh
until I become unmade

And with my compass haunted
I don't know what I don't know
So I'm never letting go

Because you push and you pull, oh
and watch how my heartlight shakes
You know you push and you pull, oh
and I'm in a low dark place
Glowing in violet, you show me your kindness
but it takes a ghost-like shape
Because you push and you pull, oh
until I become unmade
