some photos to go with a favorite song...

...melody of you {by sixpence none the richer}


you're a painting with symbols deep,
a symphony
soft as it shifts from dark beneath

a poem that flows,
caressing my skin

in all of these things you reside
and i
want to flow
from the pen, the bow and brush,

the paper and string,
and canvas touch
with ink in the air,

to dust your light
from morning to the black of night

this is my call—i belong to you
this is my call—to sing the melodies of you
this is my call—i can do nothing else
i can do nothing else

you're the scent of an unfound bloom

a simple tune
i only write variations to
a drink that will knock
me down on the floor

a key that will unlock the door where i

hear a voice
sing familiar themes
then beckons me weave
notes in between
a bow and a string,
a tap and glass
you pour me till the day has passed

this is my call—i belong to you
this is my call—to sing the melodies of you
this is my call—i can do nothing else
i can do nothing else


{these are some of my favorite lyrics ever written. you can hear the song if you go to ETHEREAL, scroll down to the playlist at the bottom, and play song no. 21.}

I want to know how you see things like that. The perspective is really incredible; I'm always thinking, "Wait, how did she see that? Why did she grab it from that perspective?"

Totally inspiring. Now I'm going to go listen to that song...
