Crutches

10 Jun

Those words you wrote for me then, well I can remember them all,

They sit, doused in white wine, and on wild nights stagger and fall,

I try to be a good man,

But I know that I may never be,

And still, I dream,

Yes still, I dream.

 

So we break our bones,

But as long as there’s love we can hope,

We’ll make crutches for our hearts,

And they’ll help us to cope.

 

I gained these calluses back in the winter when I became lost,

They numbed the wind-chill, the side of the bed that was smothered in frost.

I have put them to good use,

They’ve saved me from bite marks and scars,

But they’re put aside for now,

They’re put aside for now.

 

So we take small steps,

There’s still time to waste and to give,

And forget what we’ve lost,

Just remember to live.

I’ve finally written the lyrics for the first Branches song. Branches is going to be my new music project in 2012, with a debut EP scheduled for release.

 

I sometimes suffer aches and migraines,

It’s only ‘cause I care.

For things that break through words and whispers,

I trust that they are there.

Just blueprints, maps and isometrics,

Skeletons to share.

 

So don’t be afraid, it’s just, I’m glad that you came.

Forget about truths, and hide, we all do the same.

It’s not just you.

 

I sometimes wonder, in the dark hours,

If we were right to see.

Those coils, those wires, and turning cogs that

Manifest in me.

They shape and form the lathe of heaven,

The place this world could be.

 

So don’t be afraid, it’s just, I’m glad that you came.

Forget about truths, and hide, we all do the same.

It’s not just you.

 

Hope to have a demo up sometime soon.
