almost

i will always remember
the day i almost lost my lightness
almost forever

i will always remember
the day i almost lost my lightness
it was the day
i lost everything else
everything else
the day i lost everything else

when sadness was so silent
and silence so sad

you did not close your eyes
when you fell asleep
and finally
stranded like a stone

ref.
waiting to be washed away
into the ocean
waiting to be
carried against the tide
deeper down into the sea
to hide
in remotion

it is almost over now
slipping away

you did not close your eyes
when you fell asleep
and finally
stranded like a stone

ref.
waiting to be washed away
into the ocean
waiting to be
carried against the tide
deeper down into the sea
to hide
in remotion

Even if it's hard to remember
It would be sad to forget
To forget to be sad
Almost, forever
