The song just stills my heart. It freezes me. Puts me in a moment I remember somewhere back in my mind beyond the to-do lists and present paranoias, past the judgement and despisement…somewhere where love and safety and happiness were synonymous, somewhere where I never thought I would be.
I do not think that is a feeling that you duplicate. I am not holding out much hope. But I suppose that’s why sad songs are good for the soul. It means maybe something else is out there.
“Desire has known us well
Living dreams is living hell but
They brought us through the times
I wanna light myself on fire
I spent thirty years not knowing you
I can’t afford to waste more time
Running ’round the world
When all I know is you’re my girl”
