Holding Absence – Perish lyrics
[Verse 1]
It was your palms and your feet, and every single thing between
We were an easy thing to do - I enthused over you
But melancholia... Insomnia... Saudade - They had me
It's hard to forget I'm looking back on a time, when every beat in your heart was beating for mine

[Chorus]
You had the world at your feet and you kicked it back at me
I had a hole in my heart, and you didn't have the decency to wait and see
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Between the angels and infinity
There is a hideaway, a place to be for me
And when I'm better you can set me free

[Verse 2]
It's safe to say that you were mine - A songbird to a morning sunrise
And how I miss my spotless mind, I lost it to the twilight
Much like our love, a songbird always flies without regret
And even after everything, we perished when the sun set

[Chorus]
You had the world at your feet and you kicked it back at me
I had a hole in my heart, and you didn't have the decency to wait and see
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Between the angels and infinity
There is a hideaway, a place to be for me
And when I'm better you can set me free

[Outro]
Every blind spot and every nicety, I learned about your heart...
I watched them perish before me
