January 1979
mewithoutYou Lyrics


January, 1979 saw a terrible crash and it couldn't help but laugh.
My ear pressed against the pass like a glass on a wall of a hospital photograph.
My forehead no longer sweet with holy kisses worthy of your fiery lips.
I was floating in a peaceful sea rescued by a sinking ship.

If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall. (I could be your servant)
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall. (If I could be your servant)
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall. (I could be your servant)
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall. (If I could be your servant)

You watch me like a ten car highway wreck with a tact, bold or curiosity?
Us looking down on the tops of the hats of us passersby from your seventh floor balcony and grew such a height we missed creatures too small for sight.
Carry on over conversation as the misguided insects crown me their grasshopper king with a dance of celebration.

After years with their crown on my head, I'm rolling over in bed unconcerned and comfortably numb kept busy indulging in the pleasures of the wealthy.
Oh, someone make me afraid of what I've become.
At the first sign of possible sorrow I'll turn my heel and run.
Oh, I'll never learn.
My life's become the sugar I've borrowed before, time and again and forgot to return.

It was a matter of time, I always said I could see but now I'm going blind. (I could be your servant)
It was a matter of time, I always said I could see but now I'm going blind. (If I could be your servant)
It was a matter of time, I always said I could see but now I'm going blind. (I could be your servant)
It was a matter of miserable time but I heard somewhere, there was a cure for useless eyes. (If I could be your servant)

Lyrics
January 1979,
Saw a terrible crash
(and I couldn't help but laugh)
My ear pressed against the past
Like a glass on a wall of a house in a photograph
My forehead no longer sweet
With holy kisses
Worthy of your fiery lips
I was floating in a peaceful sea
Rescued by a sinking ship

If I could become the servant of all
No lower place to fall
(If I could be your servant)
If I could become the servant of all
No lower place to fall
(If I could be your servant)
If I could become the servant of all
No lower place to fall
(I could be your servant)
If I could become the servant of all
No lower place to fall
(If I could be your servant)

You watch me like a ten car highway wreck
With detached, vulgar curiosity
This looking down on the tops of the hats
Of us passersby from your seventh floor balcony
And from such a height you missed
Creatures too small for sight carry on covert conversation
As the misguided insects crown me their grasshopper king
With a dance of celebration


After years with their crown on my head
I've grown overfed, unconcerned
And comfortably numb
Kept busy indulging in the pleasures of the wealthy
(Oh, someone make me afraid of what I've become!)
At the first sign of possible sorrow
I'll turn my heel and run, (Oh, I'll never learn)
My life's a cup of sugar I borrowed
Before time began and forgot to return

(I could be your servant)
It was a matter of time
I always said I could see, but now I'm going blind
(If I could be your servant)
It was a matter of time
I always said I could see, but now I'm going blind
(I could be your servant)
It was a matter of time
I always said I could see, but now I'm going blind
(If I could be your servant)
It was a matter of miserable time
But I heard somewhere, there was a cure for useless eyes

Even over 10 years later, this song is still nearly perfect

Nearly perfect? How can you be nearly perfect? Like this....

Amber likescats

I took it to BE chaotic

Amber likescats

I think the perfection is in the messy imperfection

" I WAS FLOATING IN A PEACEFUL SEA, rescued by a sinking ship."

Firestier

I thought of it as in the middle of the sea where there was nothing going on around him for miles, not like he is peaceful and enjoying it

David Francis

Think he is meaning in the womb and life is the sinking ship , well that's my take 😀

Amber Dixon

Sounds like he must be talking about life.

I'm getting a tattoo of a sinking ship because of this
