a perfect sonnet - lyrics by bright eyes

lately i've been wishing i had one desire
something that would make me never want another
something that would make it so that nothing matters
all would be clear then

but i guess i'll have to settle for a for a few brief moments
and watch all dissolve into a single second
and try to write it down into a perfect sonnet
or one foolish line

'cause that's all that you'll get so you'll have to accept
you are here then you're gone

but i believe that lovers should be tied together and
thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather
left there to drown
left there to drown
in their innocence

but as for me i'm coming to the final chapter
i read all of the pages and there's still no answer
only all that was before i know must soon come after
that is the only way it can be

so i stand in the sun
and i breathe with my lungs
trying to spare me the weight of the truth

saying everything you have ever seen was just a mirror
and you've spent your whole life sweating in an endless fever
and now you are laying in a bathtub full of freezing water
wishing you were a ghost

but once you knew a girl and you named her lover
and danced with her in kitchens through the greenest summer
autumn came, she disappeared
you don't remember where she said she was going to

but you know that she's gone because she left you a song
that you don't want to sing

singing i believe that lovers should be chained together
and thrown into a fire with their songs and letters
left there to burn, left there to burn in their arrogance

but as for me i'm coming to my final failure
i've killed myself with changes trying to make it better
ended up becoming something other than what i had planned to be

now i believe that lovers should be draped in flowers
and layed entwined together on a bed of clover
left there to sleep
left there to dream of their happiness

yes, it is a private journal and i make it a habit not to respond to comments for fear that i'll start writing for comments and not for my own emotional and spiritual growth.

if you had not commented anonymously and had left an email address i would have contacted you directly to let you know that.

not to be mean, but this is my personal online diary to help me work through a difficult time in my life, not a dieting helpline.

i've lost weight because depression and despair led to a loss of appetite. not a healthy or happy way to lose weight and i wouldn't recommend it for you.
