Title: Snooze song
Post by: Reives on June 13, 2018, 06:50:32 PM
This is really more of a muttered prose than a song, but here's something I wrote quite a while back.

It was actually written over the span of a few years, when some difficult things were going on that gave me a bit of an insomnia. Had a casual recording of it on the phone, and thought I'd post it in case there are folks who could relate in some way:

Lyrics:

Itís 2 A.M., and you lay in bed
Street lights shine so your blinds are down
Never thought the silence could be everywhere
Even though you could've chased it to most anywhere

Staring at the ceiling like the top of the world
At least it will be, until the early birds sing
Glancing at the closet that you once abhorred
Thinking back to when monsters hid inside its door

So many years have passed, so many things youíve done
Things to be proud of, things canít be undone
Once upon a time, in a different world
Did you ever dream to be where you are today?

~~~

One step forward and one step back
The moment came and the momentís gone
Couldíve been, wouldíve been, knocking every now and then
Fleeting at the sound of nothing but the quiet

Footsteps, floating in the air above-
Your head, they fled before you even opened your
Eyes to say good bye
Fading to a place you cannot follow to-

Night, you might just be alright
Ephemeral point between asleep and awake
Itís not too late, too dark, too far
To hold onto what reality is meant to be

~~~

Reflection of a world beneath your feet
Illusion of a world between your ears
Why fight, why chase the kite
When everything you do keeps you awake at night

As the hero of your story turns into all but a villain
With an empty hand, all thatís given, drops in an ocean
But you tried, and you tried to make it right
Until one day, one glass, one way or another

Gone are the days you await the moon
Gone are the nights you miss the sun,
Thereís irony in sight when itís hard to find the light
But thereís beauty in this world whether you see it tonight

um i think a ninja stole into my basement and hardcore started chopping onions.
Seriously though, this is a beautiful song, Reives! Very dreamlike and calming, but also melancholy in a certain way. I feel, at least in an emo, youngstery kind of way, I can relate to it.
