over moments apocalyptic yet hopeful plangent descending phrase weary but maybe ambient drone suspension of notes


Words by Elizabeth Levett Fortier

You should have seen us then
When we were all together.
We weren’t afraid of anything
We could go on forever.
Then this whole thing got going and
Now it’s such a mess.
Ashes glowing in yellow skies and
I can’t turn my head.
Maybe when all this blows over,
I’ll see you again
Maybe when all this blows over,
We'll go out in the rain

You should have seen us then,
Like some velvet dream.
We didn’t know what was coming.
We were a sight to be seen.
Then all the changes started.
Some of us got lost.
Still I can hear your voice so clear
Among the trees in the frost.
Maybe when all this blows over,
We'll all laugh again.
Maybe when all this blows over,
We'll go run in the rain.
