I still remember the exact place where I understood death for the first time. And now, when I go back to my town and walk by that place I think about it the same way you link that song to that girl whose hand you held when you were eighteen. And when blackness kisses me for the last time, what will be the only thing on my mind? Will the sky fade to cherry or will the stars shine on a cold night? Will regrets flood my bed or will I pridefully smile as I remember those I shared my time with? Life is love in all its forms. Hey! Tonight we sing so loud that we don't care. Your parents are gone, we're so drunk that we don't care. When everything's blurred we'll say things we never say. Someday we'll regret the things we never did, tonight we kiss as if we didn't care.
This is a curse that I’ve suffered for many years. I don’t know what I will do the next time. Day after day it hurts. Why me? Will I forget my friends in the end? Why me? I keep forgetting things and what’s done is done. Dear conscience, I know you’re not clear. There are demons in my sleep and my friends lost hope in me. I don’t blame them; I can’t remember where I parked my car but I never forget to show love, so please, at least, take that to heart. I hear the snow starts to fall and I forgot to build a shelter, so I say to myself “never again”. But then Spring comes and the sun shines on nothing cause I forgot to plant my flowers, so I miss the rain in Summer and I’m dreading the next mistake. I’m weak and I’m hesitant. One second of clarity followed by days of guilt is what I feel. I hide my face with my hands and I feel sorry for being me. And it seems to be I can’t help but repeat the truth to help my mood. I’m a better person when I’m with you. Offer the key to your world so I can open doors that will help me stay alive. I’ll give back all I can; words and songs that will make you wish you were not alive. Always when I dream about you I see your smile under the moon. Always when I dream about you I can’t believe you love me too.
King 01:07
And now I see it clearly. The time will come when you open the door and you'll find her. There is a castle around her but you're the humble peasant whose harvest is the sweetest. It's not a mountain of grain. It's just a handful of good intentions, kindness and days sitting, waiting, wishing. But you cannot fail. But you cannot fail. You cannot fail! For days went by, you travelled too far, went through sleepless nights and hell was timeless in your depression. You know you're December, but May will arrive soon and believe me: snow doesn't fall in May. Feel the warmth and scar after scar you will embrace the blossom. You begged for a seed, worked for a tree and enjoyed the whole land. Isn't that something you can call your own? You deserve the castle, you deserve the reign. And at times, you wish it was her. But you hear this my friend: the humble will be King.
City lights 02:19
It's 2 am, eyes on the ceiling cracks again, like rivers flowing , like mended seams. Smokes from candles seep through my eyes, now regret’s consuming me alive. City lights die above my head, winding streams as a comet's tail. The sirens sing, echoing in the distance, the sound of your voice still rings in my ears. Tell me that I'm alright, ‘cause I'm worried I'll never change. I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere, where the clouds cast a permanent shadow, where everything remains, everything we could've done differently. You need to leave. My sadness is a drug and we're not strong enough. I need to leave, can't rely on you this much. Burning every night to collapse on myself after all. Like galaxies were made, just pressure and heat. City lights die above my head, winding streams as a comet's tail. Silhouettes dance as your face fades out, the scent of your hair invades it all.
Sol 01:07
¿Dónde estuviste? Agua en los ojos que perdiste. La decisión que no entendiste. Sientes dejarlo todo atrás. No volverá. No puedo estar siempre bajo el hielo, sintiendo que no debo romper tu fragilidad. Todos van comiendo de tu mano y tú les das el brazo. ¿Cuánto me queda por parecerme a ti? Where have you been? There's water in the eyes you lost. There's a decision you didn't understand. You feel like you're leaving everything behind. And it won't come back. I can't always be under the ice, feeling that I shouldn't break your fragility. You give everybody an inch and they take a mile. How far am I from being like you?
Andromeda 03:34
What you said is empty rain and water thin. What you meant was a nail (it) wounds the same. Did the Pleiades show our way? Or were the freckles in your face, what I read? Maybe we’re born to drift. Maybe we drift to live, lost in dreams never chased. I wonder, if you wake up, remembering what I was trying to forget the night away. Forever mourning tiredness I portray. When everything's done, just regret remains. Looking for answers in all the wrong places I got to learn that only forgiveness can heal. I'm breathing waves. I'm drowning. We'll meet in Andromeda, where our consciousness will collide. We'll fill the infinite void that separates us from the dark. Loneliness pains in the back of my mouth, where the bitter taste of blood reminds me of you. Did the Pleiades show our way? Or were the freckles in your face, what I read? Maybe we’re born to drift.
Love 01:26
Brand: So listen to me when I say that love isn't something that we invented. It's... observable, powerful. It has to mean something. Cooper: Love has meaning, yes. Social utility, social bonding, child rearing... Brand: We love people who have died. Where's the social utility in that? Cooper: None. Brand: Maybe it means something more, something we can't yet understand. Maybe it's some evidence, some artifact of a higher dimension that we can't consciously perceive. I'm drawn across the universe to someone I haven't seen in a decade, who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't understand it.
Was the pill the best of options? My health the worst of auctions? Am I ready to decide? When the world is on my shoulders, my teeth are getting older. Is it time to run away? Without me, everything that is will not cease to be. I’m sure birds will sing the same. When I’m gone, no sadness. It’s just hard for me to accept that I’m meaningless as well. What’s it that gives you the strength and guts? I can’t find a will to live. What’s it that makes you vibrate and smile so much to say I’m here to stay? Fly high for the rest of your life. Silent inside. I hate my life, I hate the world, I wish you had caressed me but it’s late oh dad, it’s late oh mum, you beat me up at home last night. Is anybody out there with a heart as big as mine? Is anybody out there with a caring soul? I wish I was enough.
To pieces 00:58
I wanna burn this city down to pieces. I wanna run, I wanna show no weakness. I know there’s something I can do but I will never let you know. I know there’s something you can do to make this work and last forevermore.
What the hell is wrong? The more I try, the more I fall. Hands are worn and torn, I'm holding hope, I'm holding hope. Loving myself never was on top, priorities that I seemed to forget. I needed to breathe your air, that I lacked for years in my own lungs. When will I learn? Nothing changed when farewell came. When will I learn? Summer skies are not the same.
I buried sunsets in the backyard. The tide destroys the anchors, soon they're passing away. It brings relief to lose you in my sleep but when I wake up you're the captain, let me go now. I burnt the polaroids, smelt the essence, remembered your voice. (Oh! Your eyes and your voice!) And ever since you felt the disease you stopped smiling at me and you thought of the grave. I miss you. Wake me up when your hands are holding mine. Wake me up when your lips are kissing mine. I wanna be back with her. I wanna sleep next to her. When you died, I died too. Is this a dream? Wake me up.
Sun sets and I wonder what brought me here. Did chaos align before my eyes? Do you ever wonder how much you exist in other people’s lives? Will them think of me as the days slips into night? The frame stands still as I realize, I can't move, I can't breathe. My throat breaths fire, my body is stone, my mind is a cage. My throat breaths fire, my body is stone. I can't move, I can't breathe. My throat breaths fire, my body is stone. Sun sets and I wonder what brought me here. Did the chaos align before my eyes?
