Valentine
Trey Anastasio Lyrics


As we spin in circles
Walking a straight line
As we spin in circles
Walking a straight line

As we spin in circles
Walking a straight line
As we spin in circles
Walking a straight line
Silence, dark and long
And the thunder clap splits the night
And I'm standing in this field
Storms are all around me

All through the sky
I see strings of electricity
And I feel the power
Like it could burn my hands

Up above
The clouds are moving
And suddenly
The rain is all around me

Like sheets of glass
Coming down from the sky
Every drop is there to guide
Every drop is there to guide
Release, release
The ropes around your neck

We spin in circles
Walking a straight line
Spin in circles
Walking a straight line
We spin in circles
Walking a straight line

Jagged beams of light
Explode and dance in the darkness around me
And I can reach out and touch the beams
And the light turns solid and wraps around my wrist

One makes a loop
A thousand more follow
A thousand more follow till my arms are surrounded
By a comical web of light

My arms in the eyes of a web of light
A tornado of light beams
And I feel the pulling and start to rise
And every beam is there to guide

Release the ropes around your neck
The ropes around your neck
It is time to put the weight down
And the bricks and the blocks

Every drop is there to guide
Every beam is there to guide
Release, release, release
The ropes around your neck

Walking a straight line
As we spin in circles
Walking a straight line
We spin in circles
Walking a straight line

1. Why do I love this video so much? 2. That melody that starts at 4:37 is brilliant... Was phenomenal live.

And I think the song is unbelievably gorgeous. This and "Architect" are my two favorites from the album, but it's really not easy - best TAB album (for songs) ever in my NSMFH opinion.
