Richard Valcourt This one feels strange, mostly due to the beginning. It sounds like some of the older country songs, ones that you would expect to hear in a desolate bar down south. That being said, I've listened to it multiple times since it's come out, so it's doing something right.

I've been pacing around the same ideas
Haven't worked before
this time I'm not sure

In familiar footing the moment expands
A mirror to the past, the next reaches back

My legs are getting heavy, the air is growing thin
I'm searching for a place to begin

The edge of our sight
Measured in miles
Does it all break apart into untethered equations
Does it fall into place when you're far enough away from it

I've got this frantic feeling
Can't spit out the thought
Before the shops all change owners
Overnight the cars rust
The offices and parking lots contract and expand
An atom in a moment, the loosening of a hand

My heart is getting heavy
My hair is growing thin
The thought's no longer mine and the colours they dim
