Eclipse
Nujabes Feat. Substantial Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This is for the things I don't say enough,
Waiting for the day we touch
Your lips to mine eclipse solar lunar
I'll see you soon but I'll talk to you sooner
This is for the things I don't say enough,
Waiting for the day we touch
Your lips to mine eclipse solar lunar
I'll see you soon but I'll talk to you sooner

Do you honestly believe I'd turn my back on you and leave my true love all alone in this cruel world?
When every single solitary day I do my best to secure a future for me and you girl
Cause it IS all about you, It's been all about you
Seconds feel like millenniums when I'm without you,
But my momma said there be days like this and ain't jack we can do
that's the way life is.

But it's been weeks since I felt your lips and I'm a fiend for my queen so I need a fix,
Only for now I'll settle for these talks on the phone,
But I cut my arm off for a moment alone,
With the one that I cherish whether in Rome or Paris, Amsterdam or Japan,
Please note that I am thinkin' bout my baby as much as humanly possible,
An' I know you're frustrated cause life has too many obstacles

This is for the things I don't say enough,
Waiting for the day we touch
Your lips to mine eclipse solar lunar
I'll see you soon but I'll talk to you sooner
This is for the things I don't say enough,
Waiting for the day we touch
Your lips to mine eclipse solar lunar
I'll see you soon but I'll talk to you sooner

My dear my dear my dear I know you're lonely
An' I know very well that it's hard and it hurts but there's no need to cry,
Cause I will be home soon and there ain't no limit to the things that we goin' do,
Whatever you want name it and I'll make it reality,
To see my baby's face nothin' means more then that for me.
This is far from flattery I ain't trying to impress you,
truth is I miss you and I'm hurtin' internally,
Sometimes these long trips feel like eternity,
But they say distance makes the heart grow fonder,
And in this case it's proven to be fact,
So I'll be back like a T100.

From blocks away you will see me comin',
With the biggest smile you ever seen on my face,
Cause even the toughest man on the planet needs lovin',
There's nothin' tame the wild like a woman's embrace.

This is for the things I don't say enough,
Waiting for the day we touch
Your lips to mine eclipse solar lunar
I'll see you soon but I'll talk to you sooner
This is for the things I don't say enough,
Waiting for the day we touch
Your lips to mine eclipse solar lunar
I'll see you soon but I'll talk to you sooner

Feels like it's been forever and I can't wait to see ya,
It's like wit' Bonnie and Clyde, Tony and Maria,
Romeo and Juliet, Akeem, Alicia.
Basically inseparable and it's more then sexual.

Withstand every shell Tell me don't you like the sound of that?
Got my heart racing an about to have a heart attack
Wantin' to be loved by you just you.
Theres nobody loves you like I do
And I ain't scared to show it
but these feelings are hard to put into words
and I'm a poet slash MC
So give me credit for expressing them
because writin' this was more nervous then I ever been

I had to get it out for when I'm unable to sit wit' you,
You have a little song that I wrote for you to listen to,




So you know the way that you're missin' me I'm missin you.
I wanna give you the world but for now I hope this'll do.

I always love when this song turns up in my playlist. Such a pure expression of love. Substantial really captured the hardships of a long-distance relationship in this track. It's the kind of thing to inspire you to keep going even when it's hard and life has too many obstacles. Reminds me to always think about my baby as much as humanly possible 💙

@Drowning97

I agree with you. Btw, you know another song of Substantial? I'm trying to search but I can't find.

@17-.

@@Drowning97 I've got plenty I can think of. Nujabes did a whole album with Substantial called "To this union a sun was born"
Best track on there in my opinion is "If I was your MIC"

Enjoy!

@unlovedbug
