This Mess We're In
PJ Harvey Lyrics


Can you hear them?
The helicopters?
I'm in New York
No need for words now
We sit in silence
You look me
In the eye directly
You met me
I think it's Wednesday
The evening
The mess we're in and
(Oh) The city sun sets over me
(Oh) The city sun sets over me

Night and day
I dream of making love
To you now, baby
Love-making
On-screen
Impossible dream
And I have seen
The sunrise
Over the river
The freeway
Reminding
Of this mess we're in and
(Oh) The city sun sets over me
(Oh) The city sun sets over me

The city sunset over me
The city sun sets over me

What were you wanting? (What was it you wanted?)
I just want to say (I just want to say)
Don't ever change now, baby (don't ever change)
And thank you (and thank you)
I don't think we will meet again (I don't think we will meet again)
You must leave now before the sun rises above the skyscrapers
(And you must leave now)
And the city landscape (before the sunrise)
Comes into view (above skyscrapers)
Sweat on my skin, and oh (the sin and)
This mess we're in

(Oh) The city sun sets over me
(Oh) The city sunset over me
(Oh) The city sun sets over me
(Oh) The city sun sets over me

The city sun sets over me

Night and day
I dream of
Making-love
To you now baby
Love-making

Impossible dream
And I have seen
The sunrise
Over the river

Reminding
Of this mess we're in and
The city sun sets over me

What were you wanting?
I just want to say
Don't ever change now baby
And thank you
I don't think we will meet again
And you must leave now
Before the sunrise
Above skyscrapers
The sin and
This mess we're in and
The city sun sets over me

-Couple of years ago. A summer.
-I'm a student in a capital of a shit country. Im in summer school.
-There is only one thing on my mind : get weed
-My asshole dealer calls me and says i need to go to a neighboorhood that 3 kms away from me.
-Walking there every day near sunset because i smoke all of it no matter how much i buy.
-Walking through green streets, climbing long stairways etc.
-Listening to this song at least once along the way every day.
-Now i graduated and left the city.
-Realizing how great i was feeling during that walks.
-Hate the fact that days are never coming back and i will never be able to stop desperately dream of going back to that days every time i listen to this song.



PURPLE MOONLIGHT THROUGH THE BLACK NIGHT

Can you hear them?
The helicopters?
I'm in New York
No need for words now
We sit in silence
You look me
In the eye directly
You met me
I think it's Wednesday
The evening
The mess we're in and
(Oh) The city sun sets over me
(Oh) The city sun sets over me
Night and day
I dream of making love
To you now, baby
Love-making
On-screen
Impossible dream
And I have seen
The sunrise
Over the river
The freeway
Reminding
Of this mess we're in and
(Oh) The city sun sets over me
(Oh) The city sun sets over me
The city sunset over me
The city sun sets over me
What were you wanting? (What was it you wanted?)
I just want to say (I just want to say)
Don't ever change now, baby (don't ever change)
And thank you (and thank you)
I don't think we will meet again (I don't think we will meet again)
You must leave now before the sun rises above the skyscrapers
(And you must leave now)
And the city landscape (before the sunrise)
Comes into view (above skyscrapers)
Sweat on my skin, and oh (the sin and)
This mess we're in
The city sun sets over me
(Oh) The city sunset over me
(Oh) The city sun sets over me
(Oh) The city sun sets over me

My soulmate died 2 weeks ago. He was 40. We had loved each other since we were 18, but had never confessed our love, after parting after 1 year of unconditional love. We wanted to live a bit of freedom évent if we loved madly each other. Too afraid of not being up to it ... we never told each other we loved us for 20 years. Meeting too many companions, just to spend Time... we finally broke our modesty 2 years ago. And we loved each other madly again ... 20 years lost ... 20 years not loving anybody else. And after all this sadness, we loved each other again. We found our soulmate again...I shared this song with him lying 6 days, looking at him deeply, in silence until bis funeral. Song of my Life

OMG, I am so very sorry for your loss, Elodie. Posts don't usually make me burst out and cry unless something is not right with the person that posted it or anything in their life but your post did at "My soulmate...". I hope you are okay. You, your family and his are in my prayers. Take care.
