Maggie Rogers – Embers

Maggie Rogers – Embers

Fight or flight, I choose to run
composure instantly undone
I catch my breath, but it’s too small
I breathe again, I breathe in all

and everything we ever shared
I stand with all my secrets bared
but walk alone into the night
for you were all, the greatest light

Though the fire has died,
And the ash, it subsides,
The embers stay burning for you.
Clocks they always seem to lie
on minute hands you can’t rely
but heartbeats always tell the truth
they race at just the thought of you

the same way that they always have
shy of hopeful, never sad
but always wondering, always afraid
that you forgot just what we made

Though the fire has died,
and the ash, it subsides,
the embers stay burning for you.

And if they die, I’ll still remember
if they die, I’ll still remember
if they die, I’ll still remember you

Though the fire has died,
and the ash, it subsides,
the embers stay burning for you
