Say

I guess the way I worded all my words, just spelled "deserted" And I'm really not surprised you couldn't stay When truth was at its lowest and the snow was at its slowest There were angels on the ground that couldn't pray I couldn't hear you calling through the fall of this enthralling Little moment … Continue reading Say
