A lovely, albeit haunting, duet.

Performed by Kyle Acheson and Corley Pillsbury, from the new play ATLAS PIT by Alex Burkart.


How long will I wake up to another perfect spring?
Clear as a ghost
Only visiting

The beam to the rafter to the place beneath my chin
Call to the sky
While I begin

Oh we've only known the night
You are my shade you are my shine

The sounding of the drums and the hissing of the rain
It claws at my skin
This braided chain

Circling the ground tracing circles where I swing
Free from the world
Only visiting

Oh we've only known the night
You are my shade you are my shine

Oh the lonely ghost is mine
Thrown into the sea and out of time

You are my shade you are my shine
