lyrics

This was your person before you were a ghost
This was love before you knew about love


This was my person before you were a person
This was me when I wanted to be you

I was your girl when I was still a girl
This was you when I was trying to be me

This was my person before you were a person
This was you when I wanted to be me

I was still a girl when I was your ghost
This was you when I was trying to be me

Come on, I need to know
How could we have stayed
And stayed in that moment

So serious
So much to say
So young
So laughing
So nothing, no way
No way
No way
No way
No way

Oh, we were so free
We were so separate and so free

How was that possible?
How was that possible?

You were my glove
When I wanted one glove to love
Two gloves
Then it’s right there to wear

Our nights were so long
Our nights were so long

Tell me everything you need to know
Go slow go glow
About feeling so small
So small
We’ll tear the light
We’ll bear the light
In this fraction of the night
Eat the hate up like love
Oh oh just wear my glove

You were my glove
When I wanted one glove to love
Two gloves
And that perfect deep down love

It’s possible
It’s possible

We’re most awake in the dark
That’s what you sent

Even better than a call
So deep and so steep
Just sit back and fall
Just fall, fall, fall

Seemed like everything was known
No choices to choose
Thoughts and searching all
An entire life to lose

You were my ghost when I was still a girl

That was something, you know
Something, you know
That was something you did
I know you did
You did

Something, you know
Something, you know
Something
Something you did
You did
You did

You were my glove when I wanted one glove to love
Two gloves
And we eat your hate like love

The ghosts are so strong
Our ghosts go so long

You were my glove when I wanted one glove to love
Two gloves
Awake, awake in the dark love

It’s possible
It’s possible
