A story about a broken television, a beach and a lost couple. Trying to find something beautiful through a storm, and fix what's broken. Yeah, it's about a relationship.

Our serene picture is fading out

The moments are blurred and hazy

Unable to make sense of what I'm watching

Staring into the empty abyss

But powerless to switch off.

Shaking the screen hoping to return

What was once so precious.

Amongst the snow storm I make out two figures;

Lost on a beach, so distant from each other.

Echoing words of disparity through the static

It's heartbreaking.

They are so near but cannot see it.

One disappears into the fuzz, the other still trying

To find her, to save her.

For a time they both are gone


Once again I gaze upon the snowstorm


He reappears running into the distance

Where the other figure still walks. She's drained.

He sees her again and he's complete

Crying. He strokes her cheek,

Kisses her forehead

And places his coat around her shoulders.

For that moment, hand in hand

All is right in the world.

It won't be easy to escape the storm,

But for now they have each other

But for now we have each other

And that is all that matters.
