Two Small Deaths
Wye Oak Lyrics


Two small deaths happened today
While I was at work
While I was at play

A vast light darkens my door
So I cannot cry
Now what is that for?

Is this the way my mind works
Forwards, always onwards
Is this the way my brain waits
Backwards, sideways

I've no heart strong and that's why
Sting to miss and to mourn
Love, wild at its path
Sing

I'm saving up all of my strength
For when I finally fail
At keeping you safe

When my last friend should leave me
It's all right, easy

So I cannot cry
Now what is that for?

Is this the way my brain waits
Backwards, sideways
I've no heart strong and that's why
Sting to miss and to mourn
Love, wild at its path
Sing
I'm saving up all of my strength
For when I finally fail
At keeping you safe
When my last friend should leave me
It's all right, easy
I'm saving up all of my strength
For when I finally fail
At keeping you safe

When my last friend should leave me
Slow and easy
I'll be creeping around them
Picking pockets

my ex introduced me to this band... he had this album on vinyl... Damn, the best thing about that guy was his taste in music

No More.

Expanding on that, all the people I've ever met, one's I've dated or otherwise, all their songs have left imprints in my head that dance around like little ribbons of emotion, I will never not hear them in the songs they listened to... Sometimes it hurts when the people I've lost, to death or otherwise come into my head. Either way, for some strange reason I chase that hurt, it's an interesting kind of fire. One that guides your soul I guess.

No More.

I think music is a part of people, and with the music they listen to they leave little marks on us... We all hear songs differently, and so they embody parts of our lives, parts of who we are... When we share music, we share who we are.
