lyrics

Wake me when you get there little darling
Call me if you remember my name
In the darkest corners of my mind your name still brings a light
How I wish I could do for you the same

Your voice is growing faint now little darling
Must be bouncing off the years in between
But when I climb to the top of town I can swear you're calling out
Somewhere far beyond the evergreens
And if I call to you, can you still hear me?

Are you listening?
How do you remember me?
There was a rat within the kitchen back then
Are you listening?
My doubt thicker than a tree
That's how it used to be back then

Have you filled up your lantern little darling?
Have you left an oil trail back home?
Careless with a match I burned down your path
A path that can't be rebuilt alone
We'll both need to find a lower road

Are you listening?
How do you remember me?
There was a rat within the kitchen back then
Are you listening?
My doubt thicker than a tree
That's how it used to be back then
