THE LOST SKY
by Jesca Hoop

I walk the dark star, the lost sky
Searching for your signal, receive mine
I called you cold and our tears became laughter
Happy ever after

Out of our secrets, we built a home
Confide and fortify, blood, bone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burn of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burn of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

And when we said the words 'I love you'
I said them 'cause they are true
Why would you say those words to me
If you could not follow through?
Go wash your mouth out, child

I walk the dark star, the lost sky
Searching for your signal, receive mine
I called you cold and our tears became laughter
Happy ever after

Out of our secrets, we built a home
Confide and fortify, blood, bone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burn of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

And when we said the words 'I love you'
I said them 'cause they are true
Why would you say those words to me
If you could not follow through?
Go wash your mouth out, child

I walk the dark star, the lost sky
Searching for your signal, receive mine
I called you cold and our tears became laughter
Happy ever after

Out of our secrets, we built a home
Confide and fortify, blood, bone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burn of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burn of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

And when we said

How cool is that? To hear from the actor in the video.. Thanks for a peek behind the scenes. I love discovering artists new to me. Love hearing something I don't hear every day blasting from people's cars.

According to the artist:

“I have a dear friend who was in a horrific accident that left him in a coma for two weeks. We thought we had lost him. He woke up to find himself silently divorced. This was a heartbreak for all related, and I wrote this while we were waiting for him to wake up. His experience drove me to explore my own relationship with abandonment. I think the cruel nature of life and love is something we all can relate to one way or the next. When you don’t have any say in how a relationship plays out, when you’re cut off, there’s a relentless loop that plays again and again in your own mind of those words that you would say… if love was fair enough to let you speak it. This song gives you that chance.”

Oh my. That is a sad, sad story. Yet, yes, so relatable, those core, deep feelings of grief that seem to lurk and bubble up behind even minor, less tragic disappointments.

I've been playing this on loop for an hour. Stop reading my diary.
Breathtaking song, and Singer.
Well done.
