And We Could Lose Ourselves Forever

 

 

Song 2 of my 25 songs list

Shriekback-The Only Things That Shines

 

Night night
Blow out the candle
Inside a blazing building
Upon a sacred mission
All the lights that twinkle
All the pens that sign
All the wishes that sink
Making up our mind

Up the wooden stairs
Up into my heart
I know that you know
This is all that matters
I feel our two young deaths so close now
Smiling soft and shiny
The blade is sharp and fine
It could just slit us open

And you know
This is nothing special
With one slip
And we could lose ourselves forever
One time for all times
And you are
The only thing that shines
The only thing that shines

Nowhere near
Wade in a lake of silence
Only say that word and I will
Pour myself like wine
This is as much as I know
This is all they told me
All wicked shapes and lines
Taking us somewhere

And you know
This is nothing special
With one slip
We could lose ourselves forever
One time for all times
And you are
The only thing that shines
The only thing that shines
The only thing that shines

 

For time spent alone on bridge-rails with closed eyes.  For time spent seeking warm places beneath the sleeping worlds. For night-long candles & my useless never-ending questions. For scars: visible and hidden. For the value of a single moment: sixty paper chain seconds that somehow melt into thirty, before finally disappearing into ten very slow seconds. For the choices made in an instant that save life, destroy life…or a bit of both.

And for the art that imitates my life.
