1. Beneath

From the recording Beneath

Music and lyrics by Hannah Barstow


Days are growing cold
But tonight I’m feeling whole
Dimly glows an ember
Deep in my soul

Sheltered by a lung
And a heart beating in time
Burning with a memory
Deep in my mind

A memory so distant
That it fades when suddenly seen
It hides, forgotten, between the seams
But I still feel it

Keep the ember warm
Hold on to the memory
Keep the darkest feelings
Buried beneath

A flicker of comfort
Can ignite the memory
Before it vanishes finally
But I still feel it

The ember keeps me warm
In the darkness protecting me
Glowing ever constant
Buried beneath
