Very much just another blog

Some songs

with 2 comments

Some songs will break your heart. They crawl inside you packed with their memories and their signs and smells and make their home. They roll out inside your skin, touching every part of you. Their sound could be breathing and the shape they make as they lie tight between your bones and flesh is the same shape they left in singing ink the last time you listened, or heard.

Some songs slide their hands around your waist and lift you metres from the ground. They holler the words and love you giddy. They dance inside you, spinning your arms and your legs and grinning as your head  is back and you’re looking towards the sky and nothing could make you feel better than this.

Sometimes every song was written just for you. And you need every line to understand where it is you are or where you want to be.

Sometimes, Jesus Christ, you’d do anything just for a bit of quiet.
