SKIN January 05, 2014.

This is one of my favorite Poets Of The Fall songs I have had stuck in my head for a long time.


“You’re Still Here”

Mercury dances in its skyscraper cell, rising and falling like rhapsody
And I see winter’s broken like lace, in time for a celebration

Thaw wails inside the walls and laughs in the corners, delighting in its evident victory
Till I feel springtime counting its days of flaunting a novel sensation

Like it’s leaving, leaving behind the weight vying for yesteryear
Leaving promises in its wake, whispering, my love, you’re still here

Hold on to your memories of sundogs and rainbows, as time writes a premature eulogy
And I feel summertime passing in haste, like running out of patience

Quilted with knit and umbrellas and scarfs and a mild understanding of irony
I feel autumn leaving the race, all done with the exhilaration

It’s leaving, leaving behind the weight vying for yesteryear
Leaving promises in its wake, whispering, my love, you’re still here

Mercury dances in its skyscraper cell, rising and falling in harmony
And I feel winter stealing my days, to herald another creation

That is all for today, to be honest. I’m not feeling myself lately. I need some major picking up.

This door no longer leads us to their love.
You should see the state I’m in.
I couldn’t heal myself with time… I have you tattooed on my skin.
All I ever wanted was to hold you.. what can I do now to make things new?
I’m trying to write you into a song because you’re too sacred and it would feel wrong.
When I was finally ready to meet you half way… you turned and walked away.
