To Build a Home
by The Cinematic Orchestra

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home

'Cause, I built a home
For you
For me

Until it disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it's knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me

And, I built a home
For you
For me

Until it disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

Yes I am crying like a baby. This takes me back 21 years ago when I sat with my wife in the hospital. it was her last night on this earth.
The song is the most beautiful piece of music I have ever listened to. All our memories are rushing over me right now.


Oof, I am so sorry, and I hope she is doing good up or down there.

My ex girlfriend dedicated this music to me, well to us, the first time i listen to it we were using watch2gether, because we were far away, I'm from Italy and she was from Germany, we had a long distance relationship, but a the end, it didn't work, we broke up after 1 year, and in april we split up. We argued the last time we talk, and since then I don't have any news from her.. but man, I still love her, I can't really get over, it's december and if i think about her I have feelings and start to cry. I'm sure she is my person, my soulmate, because i've never feel nothing like this, and before i had a 6 years relationship, but God, she made me feel things things i've never felt.. This is her favorite song, and maybe sometimes she still listen to it, so maybe one day she will scroll the comment and read this: "Debora, I really loved you and still I do, you are my soulmate, you are my person, please take care of yourself, from Joel". Please guys, blow up this comment, maybe she will read it one day, thanks all, God bless you

I hope she sees this 😭 and replies..

I’m also kinda in a similar situation, I’m from South Africa and my girlfriend is from Germany. I was with her in February but she was forced to fly back to Germany because this Covid-19 nonsense and babysit her sisters since her mom is Doctor 😞🌻
