Angel Olsen So That We Can Be Still Lyrics

Must all of my memories

Drown into infinity?

Try to grasp them, but I always miss

Time goes by so fast as if

It hardly wants to exist

Let’s make a mask of our face

Of our hands

So that we can be still

For a while

For a while

For a while

All the many ways that

You can choose to be alive

All the countless steps you take

Before you have arrived

All the passing faces

Going quickly on their way

Where are they going so quickly?

And when you’re going and do the same?

One moment, you’re awake

And making a sound

A number asleep in your ground

In your ground

In your ground

Well, shall we wrap it all up in a bow?

Thank you, I have all my thoughts to go

Wrapped up in a box with the rest of my soul

To hide away

To hide it away

To hide it away

Yeah, hoping somebody might find it

Yeah, hoping somebody might find it

Yeah, hoping somebody might find it

Yeah, hoping somebody might find it
