lack of light

i wont assume
but i already asked you
and you couldn't tell me

and regardless of the lack of light
i can't keep these eyes shut
and my chest is pressed tight

in this uncertainty
and with this unsteady breath
we need all the help we can get

there's a sadness in this
here, taste this salty sadness

how are we ever going to know
our way home
please keep my hands pressed tight

...together we just might
