  • Pierre is walking
    Under a red umbrella
    The clouds look like an animal
    Pierre, you feel so big but then so small
    Every single time she calls you

    You, for you I'm holding on

    Whispers are spreading
    Like miles of winter
    Someone's lonely saxophone
    Strangles him with a lone note
    It makes sure he's dead
    Then it runs home to you

    He says “for you I am hunting
    You, for you I am haunted
    Me, for me I would be leaving
    But for you I'm holding off”

    Holding off

    Pierre thinks of music
    As the sound of her smile
    On the other side he is waiting
    Pierre, your mind, your heart, and your skin
    Is the only thing that stands between you two

    You should feel the one she names is you
    Through every crack of dawn it's you
    Every note in every song is you
    You should feel she's weaving in
    All of your feathers like the wind
    A breath of forever and again
    Held by you

    For you I'm holding
    You, for you I am haunted
    You, for me I would be going
    You, for you I am holding
    You, I'm holding
    You, I am holding off
