So That We Can Be Still - Angel Olsen

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
