lyrics

Dear Laura,
God damn, it feels like it’s been so long
since I put your name to a face.
Could I even recognize you now?
Could I even recognize you?

Oh Laura,
Spent so much time in my room,
drawing up plans to escape.
You said you always wanted to see the ocean,
and that you’d find it someday.

And the last thing you did before you died
was drive 14 hours to the coast searching for the water.
And the last you said before you slipped away
was, “Look at that bright ocean blue.”

Dear Laura,
What a time to be alive, they say.
But all I see are all my friends
clutching at sleeves and struggling to breathe
We’re always struggling to breathe.

I remember every word you wrote about me
in the journal of your life when the doctors couldn’t save you.
You had so much faith in me and everything I believed,
but Laura, something inside of me has changed.
And I pray I haven’t let you down.

And the last thing you did before you died
was drive 14 hours to the coast searching for the water.
And the last thing I said before you slipped away
was, “God I hope I haven’t let you down.”

Would you even recognize me now?
Would you even recognize me now?
Would you even recognize me?
