Written during the Never Out Loud recording sessions 2011.

A very special thanks to Christopher Barn, without doubt one of the greatest musicians I've ever met. These tracks wouldn't exist without you.


Thaw these bridges into burning
As it seems so necessary
That's a fallen branch you're walking down
So don't go where you can be found

Respect forgets the sight of what's left
And I suffice when timing is right
But now and then, while taking it in
It shines to blind the people Ive been

And as they thaw, outside of that door
From cold to coal to friends of us all
I'll watch and wait until you're awake
And say this day is to separate
