about

The first single from Flora's debut record, 'A Sword of Holly'

lyrics

I find it hard to explain these days
How you get me, it's so easy
In my brain, whispering things
Falling into bed alone
We hold each other tight
To have you by my side
Reminding me to wake on time

And there are days I still hope
I never see you shine
But somehow, I still know
You will always be mine
Truthfully our parents know what it is to really be alone
They used to sleep the night
Without having to put up this fight

Won't you rest your mind
Pour a glass of wine
Waste a little time
Just a little time
Pass away the days
Act in my plays
Swim through my gaze
Melt in my maze

In the end, this time shall pass
And I'll have kids who laugh at this
But darling, think of all the time we missed
Just staring at our phones
All alone
