We were struggling with how to word the sense of loss we felt when Prince died earlier this week, so we wrote this song about it.

Track Name: Time Takes Us All
Time Takes Us All

It’s sunny today
but I’m not smiling

it must be a mistake
come on off your island

Time takes us all
sometimes it isn’t even all it does

Time makes us grieve
if you’re still living when they leave

Time and we age
though we hide it with the stage

Time in it we’ll drown
but we ask for more when we’re dragged down

Instrumental Break

What can I say
I feel so empty

I can’t seem to speak
each word’s so heavy

I don’t know you
but you, you know me so well

My name meant nothing to you
but yours was in my bone cells

What’s left of me
ragged hands, broken feet

I’m so afraid
what if I die before I am made
