"Olympian" as written by and Martin Rossiter Kevin Miles....
Give me something I can hold
With that something I will grow

Make me crazy with your arms
It's all gone hazy,
It's all gone wrong Olympian, framed by God
So bring me water to cool off
Formidable and not afraid Of the next world, just delayed

How can you decline such grand designs?
I'm flattered that you thought
I make a good reward, but
How can you survive my blatant lies?
I'm flattered that you thought
So come taste my good reward

I wanted to be there with you
For I can only be normal with you
I'm taking your life for you

    General CommentThis song...it just blows me away. One of the most beautiful underrated songs of all-time. It's flawless.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. The part where he sings 'I can only be normal with you', it's such a simple line and yet so utterly wonderful.

    What does he say in the end though? 'Olympian, framed by god' and then what? It almost sounds like 'never endless, you're begun' but not quite right, aye?

    General CommentThe thing nobody addresses: the music makes it pretty clear that "taking your life" is meant literally. So - is this an invitation to a double-suicide? Or...does he simply murder his "loved one"? After all, in the unpublished last verse (which I've commented on, on this page) it's "you", but clearly not "i", who is undergoing some transformation / transcendence.
