lyrics

There's a wrinkle in the couch where you used to sit,
We would laugh for hours while you spun a fine yarn.
Now there's nothing but the space where you used to fit.
You're my phantom kin, and it hurts sometimes.
It hurts sometimes.

I hear you in the living room,
I feel you in the dark,
My mind is gonna give in soon,
My heart is torn apart, in the morning there's no mark.

Ah-ah-ah, You'll always be my phantom kin.
Ah-ah-ah, Even if I start again.
Pins, sharpened needles, I can feel every beetle on your skin.

I pour my coffee, extra hot,
There's always extra in the pot
Do I take sugar? I forgot.
But I know you liked yours creamy, you're living in my dreams.

Ah-ah-ah, You'll always be my phantom kin.
Ah-ah-ah, Even if I start again.
Pins, sharpened needles, I can feel every beetle on your skin.

The tree you planted last summer wouldn't change its leaves with the seasons.
And then things got a bit glummer when the hours lasted longer for no reason.
I feel you pulling, asking when we're gonna harvest those limes
And I said, 'hold your horses, what's your rush? we've got
whole heaps of time'
