We Are a Strange Loop

from by Young Legs

/

about

on your knees again?
feeling lost?
at the mouth of darkness?
did you bring yourself here?
you can find your way out.
you can find yourself.

lyrics

shadows shift as the sun sets slowly
a memory is a fading story
i feel that i've knelt here before
running from those i adore

humming through a loop so strange
endless melodies that change
i cling to hope and will leave behind
old feelings bound to words
and the binding in my mind

and the way i told you off
and how i thought i knew so much
all the poetry and prose
as brittle as a dried rose
and an agony ago,
i lost count of the goodbyes.
i don't think that this ink is meant to dry

shadows sing as the sun sets slowly
about a present, past and lonely
but maybe now the woods align
if i lift my face and turn
it could finally be time

i know this haunted wood is mine
and a part of me remains
all the poetry and prose
as brittle as a dried rose

but now i know what brought me here,
(pass me by)
and the spirits pass me by.
(think this ink)
i don't think that this ink-
(meant to dry)
the ink's not meant to dry

(yet to fall)
i know the night has yet to fall
(in it all)
i take comfort in it all
(it is time)
and it could finally be time
(have to find)
i have myself to find

it could finally be time
i have myself to find
