For the record: listening to the first three tracks of Hyacinths and Thistles by the 6ths right now? Not one of my better ideas.


As You Turn to Go
Let the camera linger on your perfect skin
Your widow's peak and your lucky grin
And the bluest eyes I know
As you turn to go
Let there be a record of your gorgeous voice
The turn of phrase that filled my days with joy
Something like Bing singing soft and low
As you turn to go
I know I'm not supposed to say I'm sorry
I know you've had more loves than Mata Hari
But you know you're the star of my life story
And I'm so sorry
Let the poets struggle to describe your heart
Your art of love and your love of art
Well, if you ever loved me tell me so
As you turn to go

Give Me Back My Dreams (Note: this one really hit me in conjunction with rm’s thoughts about Jack and heroism)
Give me back my dreams
I've been counting these sheep since I can't remember when
Give me back my sleep
I'll be dreaming of you till I wake up crying again
I have lain awake
Through the longest hours
Wondering whether to cry or scream
You can take my heart
It was always yours
But give me back my dreams
When the clock strikes three
I don't care anymore about you or anything
When the clock strikes four
I could sell my soul just to hear my telephone ring
I have lain awake
Through the longest hours
Wondering whether to cry or scream
You can take my heart
It was always yours
But give me back my dreams
You don't have to talk to me the way we used to talk for hours
We don't have to talk at all but may I send you flowers?

He Didn't
Will you dance with me
Take my hands and lead me, with all my faults
In the ballroom waltz
That we might have done had we ever been young
It'll end in tears but not for years if you dance with me
Will you dance with me, me, with two left feet
You'd be showing me how
I'm no dancer now but soon you and I could step into the sky
We'll go down in flames, of course, but love remains if you dance with me
I'll make only sunny weather for you
The sky will be blue forever
I'll make only sunny weather for you
To keep me and you together
And you'll dance with me in the rain, maybe but we won't really mind
In the end we'll find it was just a dance and our little romance
It'll fall to dust but only just if you dance with me
