Stretch Your Eyes
Agnes Obel Lyrics


The darkness and the ghost
They dance so sweet and slow
Dug-out from below there
To damn the gods

A grip that will hold
That is so tight and close
Around my throat with
The weight of all our lives

You could give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You could give to my heart
Thousand words or more

The drum you stroke
Damn, that beat so old
In the ground it grows there
To damn the sun

The gates of gold
In your head you hold
A kingdom molten
May the gods be on your side

You could give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You could give to my heart
Thousand words or more

I always find myself in another world while listening Agnes. Here lyrics:

The darkness and the ghost
They dance so sweet and slow
Dug-out from below there
To damn the gods

A grip that will hold
So tight and close
Around my throat with
The weight of all our lives

You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more

The drum you stroke
Damn that beat so old
In the ground it grows there
To damn the sun (oh what will come to life)

Gates of gold
In your head you hold
A kingdom molten
May the gods be on your side

You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more

Thousand words or more
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more

The drum you stroke
Damn that beat so old

Gates of gold

A kingdom molten
May the gods be on your side

You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more
You can give to my heart
Thousand words or more

True story: I saw her live a few weeks ago. I was just standing there absorbing all of these violins and crescendos and her voice, her voice literally hypnotized me. My palms started getting sweaty. I kept looking for the bathroom sign because I thought I was going to pass out. I didn't understand why I was feeling that way in the moment. I had food in my stomach. Didn't even drink alcohol. It was simply her music. Her music is that powerful.

Evan, thank you... you said it so much better than me! (see my post above). Agnes Obel is some kind of magic!

Hope you are doing well now. This looks like arrhythmia which can occur for many reasons. Please have your heart examined.

This song is so cinematic for me. I keep picturing an eerie black and white movie in my head ; I wish I could put what I see in my mind into words but it’s never been a virtue of mine.

pinkyluv310: I couldn't put it into words, either... some things are just MUSIC MAGIC. Chills!
