This song breaks my heart in the best way, and it starts with those opening notes.
This album is their best one yet.

Lyrics:

Ground control
What do the books say about this one?
Now I think we’ve lost it all
There’s nothing to explain the distances anymore

All systems are critical
Can’t find my way back to you
Feels like there’s nowhere to go
I’m just out here waiting for you to say
Don’t be afraid, no
If you start floating away

Hey, I promise, you will be fine
Got the universe on your side
When you’re out in space
Don’t you be afraid, no
If you start floating away

Hey, I promise, you will be fine
Got the universe on your side
When you’re out in space
Don’t you be afraid, no
If you start floating away

Checking in
300 days with no reply now
I think I’ve lost my mind
There’s nothing keeping me from going outside anymore

My systems are critical
Gotta find my way back to you
Feels like I’m drifting alone
I’m just out here wishing that you would say
Don’t be afraid, no
If you start floating away

Hey, I promise, you will be fine
Got the universe on your side
When you’re out in space
Don’t you be afraid, no
If you start floating away

Hey, I promise, you will be fine
Got the universe on your side
When you’re out in space
Don’t you be afraid, no
If you start floating away

We gotta make contact to make it out
We gotta make contact to make it
We gotta make contact to make it out
If you start floating away

Hey, I promise, you will be fine
Got the universe on your side
When you’re out in space
Don’t you be afraid, no
If you start floating away

Hey, I promise, you will be fine
Got the universe on your side
When you’re out in space
Don’t you be afraid, no
If you start floating away

Don’t you be afraid, no
If you start floating away

Sorrow | Sleeping At Last

 

it feels like falling.
it feels like rain.
like losing my balance
again and again.
it once was so easy;
breathe in. breathe out.
but at the foot of this mountain,
i only see clouds.

i feel out of focus,
or at least indisposed
as this strange weather pattern
inside me takes hold.
each brave step forward,
i take three steps behind
it’s mind over matter –
matter over mind.

slowly,
then all at once.
a single loose thread
and it all comes undone.

where there is light,
a shadow appears.
the cause and effect
when life interferes.
the same rule applies
to goodness and grief;
for in our great sorrow,
we learn what joy means.

i don’t want to fight,
i don’t want to fight it.
but i will learn to fight,
i will learn fight
’til this pendulum finds equilibrium.

slowly,
then all at once.
the dark clouds depart,
and the damage is done.

so pardon the dust
while this all settles in.
with a broken heart,
transformation begins.

Way Out There – Lord Huron

I’m a long way from the land that I left
I’ve been running through life and cruising toward death
If you think that I’m scared you’ve got me wrong
If you don’t know my name, you’ll know it now
I belong bodily to the earth
I’m just wearing old bones from those that came first
There are many more flames when mine is gone
They will build me no shrines and sing me no songs

I’m a long way from the one that I loved
I’ve been tending old flames, lamenting what was
Drifting in a land that time forgot
If you think that I’ve changed, you know me not
I belong bodily to the earth
I’m just wearing old bones from those that came first
I been unraveling since my birth
Gonna wander out there and see what I’m worth

Find me way out there
there’s no road that will lead us back
When you follow the strange trails
they will take you who knows where
If I found a way to stay with you tonight
it would only make me late, for a date I can’t escape

Sleeping At Last – I’ll Keep You Safe

I’ll keep you safe
Try hard to concentrate
Hold out your hand
Can you feel the weight of it
The whole world at your fingertips
Don’t be, don’t be afraid
Our mistakes they were bound to be made
But I promise you I’ll keep you safe

You’ll be an architect so pull up your sleeves
And build a new silhouette
In the skylines up ahead
Don’t be, don’t be afraid
Our mistakes they were bound to be made
But I promise you I’ll keep you safe
I’ll keep you safe

Darkness will be rewritten
Into a work of fiction, you’ll see
As you pull on every ribbon
You’ll find every secret it keeps
The sound of the branches breaking under your feet
The smell of the falling and burning leaves
The bitterness of winter
Or the sweetness of spring
You are an artist
And your heart is your masterpiece
And I’ll keep it safe

Dismiss the invisible
By giving it shape
Like a clockmaker fixes time
By keeping the gears in line
Don’t be, don’t be afraid
God knows that mistakes will be made
But I promise you I’ll keep you safe

As you build up your collection
Of pearls that you pulled from the deep
A landscape more beautiful than anything that I’ve ever seen
The sound of the branches breaking under your feet
The smell of the falling and burning leaves
The bitterness of winter
Or the sweetness of spring
You are an artist
And your heart is your masterpiece
And I’ll keep it safe
