so my sister bought plane tickets for us to spend Christmas in LA right before I was going to tell her that I need to go to rehab during winter break hohoho
The color of an afternoon/just like when you were 5 years old/the moon over the ocean I’ve seen from a island evening/progression that starts to lose its meaning/if we have spent most of a lifetime dreaming/then dreaming is the state we shall keep/stories of our solitude will sing themselves to sleep/and we will sing to everything the stories of where we have been/the history that’s coursing through our veins/no, nothing factual is written on a page
so surely and so steadily/a slowly moving cloud will whisper “i am but for hours born to last"/your sogging soaking future is my foggy fading past/and so now if you want to wish upon me, wish upon me fast/whatever can be held in your heart is surely yours to grasp/so you wish for a picture of all of the people you have had the pleasure to know/or a postcard from all of the places that you ever wanted to go/saying "you are here now on this magical night"/the sun and sky at sunset, well, its such a stunning sight/you can sleep safely and soundly and you are loved
and nothing ever does begin like nothing ever ends/ask every atom in your body and they’ll surely tell you “friend, i am old as time and older still”/and you are made of everything you love, you feel, or kill/I will outlive you, and forgive you, and be just a baby still
If I could listen to only this song forever I think I would be okay.
Video: Daft Punk - “Instant Crush” (feat. Julian Casablancas)
This is the best song on Random Access Memories and one of the best songs of the year. The video is pretty good too.
