"Parisian Dream" as written by and Laura Veirs....
Your painting
Scratched lines of blue and gold
You open me up
Was folding into myself
A deck of cards
Face down empty on the shelf

Your song with
Emphasis on one and two
Then I couldn't keep time
You took me into a dream
Exploding soundtrack
That I treasure as mineâ?¦

I was bent over
My chest and invisible line
Sinking
But then the light
The lamp that I held
In my blistered hands
You the fuel and
Me the fool for not noticing

This Chinese junk we're on
With strapping strong
You cast free the lines
Let's float here
Together clearly we better
Slip out to the brine!

    General CommentBeautiful song, I love this entire album and the theme she goes with in her songs. This song has a lot of great descriptions.

    I think this is just the classic, girl realizes that a person has such an impact on her life, turned it from bad to good, and now she wants to be with them forever

    General CommentDoes this song have emphasis on one and two? It sounds like it does, but of course, I could be wrong. But if it does, that would be really cool.

    And I love the cello in this. If it is a cello. I could wrong on that also.
