What Really Matters (single)

Arielle Silver

LYRICS
What would you take if your world was on fire
Riding the wind on a tinder of leaves
Flames flying in like an enemy fighter
Sun rising red, tell me what would you grieve

When you’re burned down to the bedrock
When you’re scraped down to the coals
When everything you thought you knew is changing
And you feel the devil fighting for your soul

Flask of whisky, stash of pot
Letters from a lover that you should have long forgot
When your tidal wave of tears turns to laughter
That’s when you know it comes down
Down down down down down down down
To what really matters

Smoke screens and daydreams don’t help when you’re running
Tears lift to heaven the rest of your home
Falling like snow you’re an angel in ashes
Chimneys and tree bones and churchyard stones

When it comes down to the bedrock
When everything that you’ve known
Is scattered glass in the doorway
And you’re wrestling with an angel for control

Flask of whisky, stash of pot
Letters from a lover that you should have long forgot
When your tidal wave of tears turns to laughter
That’s when you know it comes down

Flask of whisky, stash of pot
Letters from a lover that you should have long forgot
When your tidal wave of tears turns to laughter
That’s when you know it comes down
Down down down down down down down
To what really matters
