Composition

Would you like to comment on this entry?

"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

So we let it go to start again,
knowing now how all our best intentions never lit the world on fire.
And the lights illuminate the exit signs..
Over the wings, the sky’s an open endless sea,
crowding up, surrounding me.

And all of Detroit waves goodnight, spread out beneath me now.
If I could…
If I could change, believe me, I would, ‘cause I would for you.

When you’re warm enough to share your sheets,
cold enough to make it seem like I was only there long enough to disappear.
Well, I’ll still say your name to fall asleep over and over
— a cynic saying rosary, a liar living make-believe.

And all of Detroit waves goodnight,
spread out, beneath me now..
If I could…
If I could change, believe me I would,
‘Cause I would..
and Detroit waves.
Detroit waves.

It comes around, around, around
comes around around around
comes around around around again…

These lyrics are by Matt Nathanson, from Detroit Waves. Posted at 5:40pm on 16 August 2007.
