etcetera. whatever

thank you, alli, for both introducing me to their music so many years ago and then reminding me of them at a time i perfectly needed to hear.

Don’t speak.
Words come out your eyes.
You’re wet with this nightmare.
Like thorns you hold these secrets to your breast,
your slender fingers closing into fists.

Trace your bruise
like a guilty streak.
Hold the pain.
You’re a connoisseur.
You think you have no other gift to give,
but we have so much left to live…

etcetera. Whatever. I guess all I really mean
is we’re gonna be alright.
Yeah, we’re gonna be alright.
You can close your eyes tonight,
’cause we’re gonna be alright.

And courage is a weapon we must use
to find some life you can’t refuse.

etcetera. Whatever. I guess all I really mean
is we’re gonna be alright.
Yeah, we’re gonna be alright.
You can close your eyes tonight,
’cause we’re gonna be alright.
All that I can see is your eyes.
Close your eyes.
Close your eyes.

(a chopped up version of over the rhine‘s etcetera. whatever)

    I used to go to school with you and I would really love to catch up. We have so much in common. Kindred spirits are hard to come by, so I would love to chat via email sometime.
