Draw Breath

from Look at My Van Gogh by Matthew Ryan

/

about

A continuation of feelings of grieving and loss. I am now jealous of heaven because that is where I hope he is residing. I am uncertain of how I will keep living or in terms of the song, where I will draw breath. Hopes of blowing away in the wind and losing all connections but the idea of hurting my family keeps me grounded.

lyrics

We're calling you back
My arms stretch wide
I’m light on my toes
Lanterns light the path
The shaky ground
Where your bones lie
Where we all go
When it's time to die

And one foot
In front of the other
One by one
I lose another
And heaven's lucky
Cause you house my father
And I’m uncertain
Of where I’ll draw breath

I’ve given up
On the sun
I grow out my hair
To shade me from the heat
I’ve lost weight
In hopes of blowing away
But I have these boots
That keep me grounded

And one foot
In front of the other
One by one
I lose another
And heaven's lucky
Cause you house my father
And I’m uncertain
Of where I’ll draw breath
