Your hourglass shape in the light
Half covered in cloth, the rest untouched

Thinking I don't feel like being a sentimentalist today
And whispering, "Wake up, wake up, the rain is slowing"

Touching a hand to a head, the static of the radio humming
Someone humming something pretty off where the antenna just can't reach

    General CommentThis is an absolutely gorgeous song. Sometimes its difficult to listen to the lyrics, though, because his voice just blends so much with the beautiful music.

    It makes me want to cry. It makes me weak, and it makes me want to give in to your gentle force. Gorgeous.
