Why Not

from Driftless EP by Anna Vogelzang

/

lyrics

a ferris wheel, a carousel, I try
to find my way
& if I see you at the bar tonight
i'll try to look away

a miracle, a spectacle your face
I try to explain
the flickering garden lights of memory
I try to blur away

I don't see why not / I don't see why not

mermaid heart, you yearn your phantom life
a sister ship
the alabaster ache inside your chest
a medicine

can you bear the ghosts inside the hull
the next of kin
tear it down, you tear it all apart
a violence

I don't see why not / I don't see why not
what makes you believe that I need to be brought back to life?

fiction fades, the frozen storm awakes
slow burn the stars
we toil and spin, we plow and sow and wait
and turn to dark

we've lost some, but do not walk away
I would turn to salt
I am the baltic sea, waiting
for your heart to turn to rust

I don't see why not / I don't see why not
what makes you believe that I asked to be led to the flood?
