about

a retelling of Echo and Narcissus, from Echo's perspective

lyrics

Echo

If you won’t return to me
The simple painful mystery will fold me up
& Break me like the hollow stairs
That I go climbing everywhere - for a bit of peace

Because if there's one broken heart
Lifting its hands apart
Because if there's one broken heart
Then there must be two

These grounds look the same to me
The sky will veil and memory will hold me up
Steal me from the hollow air that I’ve been breathing
Since you made – your bitter peace

Because if there's one path to take
You know your mind should change
Half-way along the way
I could make you turn back

Ooh / Ooh
You'll be singing alone when your world comes down
I'll be singing alone when you starve
"Return to me"
"Return to me"

Because if there's one thing I need
You know it's not beauty
But if there's one heart I need
It will always be
