Something Vague - Bright Eyes

Now and again
it seems worse than it is,
but mostly the view is accurate.
You see your breath in the air
as you climb up the stairs
to that coffin you call your apartment.
And you sink in your chair,
brush the snow from your hair
and drink the cold away.
You are not really sure
what you are doing this for
but you need something to fill up the days.
A few more hours.

There is a dream in my brain
that just won?t go away.
It has been stuck there since it came a few nights ago
I?m standing on a bridge
in the town where I lived
as a kid with my mom and my brothers.
And then the bridge disappears
and I?m standing on air
with nothing holding me.
And I hang like a star,
f_cking glow in the dark,
for all those starving eyes to see,
like the ones we?ve wished on.
But now I?m confused.
Is this death really you?
Do these dreams have any meaning?
No. No, I think it is more like a ghost
that has been following us both.
Something vague that we are not seeing,
something more like a feeling.
