I raise my hand,You clasp it tightThis is what we’ve becomeA memory, ever so slight
You don’t want to let goAnd I don’t want to goMoments pass, time stands stillA tenuous bond, I feel ill
We are now a handshake,Strangers to our soulsYou falter, throat clearingI pull away, eyes tearing
I step back quickly,You look up slowlyLashes lifting, head titling Our gaze intertwines
We are so close, I wonderThe distance seems so shortIt cannot be, for this is not our timeThis is not our time.

I raise my hand,
You clasp it tight
This is what we’ve become
A memory, ever so slight

You don’t want to let go
And I don’t want to go
Moments pass, time stands still
A tenuous bond, I feel ill

We are now a handshake,
Strangers to our souls
You falter, throat clearing
I pull away, eyes tearing

I step back quickly,
You look up slowly
Lashes lifting, head titling 
Our gaze intertwines

We are so close, I wonder
The distance seems so short
It cannot be, for this is not our time
This is not our time.

"Everything’s pattern on pattern on pattern— the chairs and the seat coverings and the wallpapers and the costumes…. Something that we wanted to build into the opening section was that it was very verdant and over-textured, as opposed to the later section where things become a lot sparser."— Joe Wright.
