oh my eyelids are heavy
but my heart’s filled with bright lights
sleep all day to see you
you’ll be in my arms tonight
I really really wanna be with you
I’m so very lonely without you
I can hardly breathe when you are away
without you I might sleep away all day
I admit my interest was piqued because of the name “The Black Skirts” when it is obvious that The Black Skirts is only made up of one member – Bryan Cho, and it doesn’t look like he wears black skirts to me . But I found the songs from the album, Don’t You Worry Baby, I’m Only Swimming an easy listen to the ears, reminiscent of my obsession with Death Cab for Cutie or She & Him (yes, I want to be related to Ben Gibbard or Zooey Deschanel) .
The honest simplicity of its lyrics and the languishing feeling that the singing gives me is enough for me to attach myself to it. This describes the stage of loving where nothing else matters except the object of your affection. Like time is in a standstill and you have lost all interest in everything but your lover.
I tend to listen to this song when I have lazy afternoons to myself, especially lazy afternoons when I am at home and it’s lightly drizzling outside. Sinking myself into my favorite novel.
I hope this week has been good to everyone!
