TITLE: Hold What You Can

Writers: Amy Stroup + Mary Hooper


Sawdust and ashes fall down

Catching the light they've found

Better look closely before they fade


Distant and blurry they call

Paint with a pen, what I saw

You said read it slowly & you'll have me


When the air gets thin

When the night won't end

When the ground caves in

Hold what you can


Our time is short & over soon

Saying new words with weight, they're true

I should have said it, I love you.
