Dead boy stares
Strange to meet you
Dead boy cares
So great to see you

Is it time to go
It's a place I know
I can't read your mind
I can't find the time
I can't feel the thrill
I don't have the will

Dead boy dares
Believe in you
Dead boy stares
Afraid that you will see him

Is it time to go
Is it a place I know
I can't read your mind
I can't find the time
I can't feel the thrill
I don't have the will

I love you
A metallic blue
I love you
Golden blue
I miss you
Shine all alone
I miss you

Don't know what to do
I don't glitter like the stars above
I don't glow like neon alone
Don't blush it's just the wind outside
Don't rush to be by my side

    General Comment:I really think this song is about a T-shirt she really likes, and obviously misses. Maybe that's how I relate it to my life: T-shirts come and go, but when you find one you love, it's hard to replace. Damn.

    General Comment:this is the standout track on 'sonic nurse' for me...kim gordon's whispery voice is melancholic yet soothing. lots of emotion behind the vocals...haunting lyrics, beautiful song

    but warm
    you are safe in your lover's jacket.

    General Comment:after the first listen...i was rivited...this song represents confusion and longing to me. the short sentences and clear imagry (for SY) portray the emotion of the song perfectly. this is certainly one of my all time favorites

    General Comment:I relate to this so well- to me it's about knowing that one day you'll have to leave, even coming to terms with that- but definitly not wanting to go. "Is it time to go/ its a place I know", finally expressing the loneliness and despair that seems evident. "I love you, don't know what to do." Feels so helpless, so hurt. Reminds me that I never want to leave the girl I love.

    General Comment:gosh i adore this song.
    it speaks to me of contemplating leaving the relationship, like what TBeasley said. this person is confused about how they feel. although they do love and miss this person, they are not fully enthralled in the relationship ("i can't feel the thrill.")

    the lines in the last verse ("i don't glitter like the stars above, i don't glow like neon alone") could be translated in two ways - they represent this person's insecurities, or the lack of emotion/enthusiasm they have re the relationship. either way, they are reasons for this person to not continue the relationship.
    it's about not knowing what do to.
    beautiful..
