A summer's eve
Lying in the cool grass 
Of days gone by
And I could get lost 
In your blue skies of spider silk
I wake in the half-sweet exhaust
Of some smoker's trail,
The last vestiges of one
Who was so tangibly here...
Sitting with you 
under an eternally starry sky
These memories bathed
In perpetual light...
I'm seeing your eyes in everyone else,
And these long-lost memories begin...
It's not them I want; it's you that I crave,
And your waves come crashing again.
Your imprints are everywhere
In everything I see,
Dreaming of a time
When again we would be
Staring glassy-eyed
Into the familiar abyss,
And the moments that never happened
Are the ones that I miss.
Some of my proudest lyrics from the new album.

These lyrics, though I'm not entirely sure what they're about, remind me of me big brother, he died 3 years ago and every time I hear this song it makes me feel a little be closer to him. Thank you for bringing such beautiful words into the world, they're words I think I'll cherish forever. <3 You truly are amazing!

Great lyrics...
and great track...!

In my mind...
in slowmotion...
I see Shelob approaching...
I cannot run...!
I am already smitten...
by the beat of the song...

Greetings Jakob.

Wow! Lovely when read as a poem, and lovely as a song. The lyrics are so poignant...
Suyarts Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Excellent poem! Absence hurts and inspires, the yearning feeds imagination and travels in time and the ultimate destiny of desire and memories stands somewhere between pain, longing and extasy. Congratulations.
LostInAPhotograph Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
This is beautiful! The figurative language is astounding. The similarities between this and my most recently updated poem are uncanny, too. I would never link to my work except in situations like this, check it out: [link]

That is just my kind of music...

Reminds me a little of my favorite band Anberlin

I think I now have a second favorite :D
MarMicheal Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2012

I listened to it and I really like the way you put the words into the music :) I find that so hard xx
so amazing!! <3
Ad4e Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012   Traditional Artist
I read the lyrics 1st, then I just had to hear the music.
Even though it's not my kind of music...
It was extremely well done. You have a new exciting style of music that is truly your own and it deserves its place in the music world. You all have worked hard on this and it shows.

The lyrics are powerful & full of passion. I could easily hear them embedded in slow southern jazz... with a piano. :)
SgtRaven Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's... I feel like I'm experiencing the lyrics..
