arietta lyrics – after the sirens

she keeps looking up and says,
“the sky is *ssembling an army.”
i hold her closer and push her hair out of her face.
“there’s nothing to fear unless
they start shooting.”
and i remember why this cold was worth your kisses.

“don’t you think it’s a pretty night to watch your own breath?”
so i open my mouth and blow into the frost
to let out all the ghosts.
