Here We Are

music and lyrics by Eki Halkka and Rick Mealey

 

He is your love, he wears the crown

I’ll take my hope to the sea to drown

make sure it’s dead, hold it down

lose this love, then you’ll be fine

but I’ll be gone till the end of time

no hanging around the scene of the crime for me

you say I never had the sight to see

you say you never had the chance to be

the woman that you are

well, who the hell have you been so far?

your fire died, reduced to char

so raise your ale, another round

and who knows what else will be found

beneath our scars

and repertoire

and here we are

 

here we are..

 

tell me no and tell him yes

well, better the ghost you know, I guess

so we’ll take time and decompress

and wait to find out who blinks first

while your soul explodes in microbursts

and you pine for him to douse your thirst for love

and I can’t watch you while you weep for him

and I can’t reach you through your walls of scrim

and dreams in angel floss

of old loves like an albatross

you can’t let go—the message crossed

ah the whiskey says I’m leaving you

but leaving now would break me too

wrecked on a bar

a fade to noir

here we are, here we are

 

here we are

behind our eyes we hide across the table

here we are

is it high and mighty pride or are we unable

here we are

to ride a rising tide and keep us stable?

here we are

 

we dance the last dance of the night

I let you go—you say you might

come home with me if there’s candlelight

and wine—so here we are

a standoff under morning stars

so here we are

so here we are

well—here we are

 

here we are

behind our eyes we cried across the table

here we are

is it high and flighty pride or are we not able

here we are

to fight a rising tide and keep us stable

here we are

hey—my friend

here we are

keep it alive

here we are…
