You took this promise away, a rusted visionary
Baby, baby, baby
Wrapped blankets sang half a chance
I know they call that romance
Baby, baby, baby

Its only slow words
We don't need that curse
You tempt me to burn
Can't pretend
We condemn
Can't pretend

I feel innocent with sunken smiles now
One last moment with you
Fly my delusioned angel
Higher than sleepless weather
Tainted point of view

Killing it for you
Killing it for you

Breathe hearts on frosty windows
Only fools wait till they melt
Maybe, maybe, maybe
Crushed iris dusky colours
Hotel match box tomorrows
Maybe, maybe, maybe

its only slow words
we don't need that curse
you tempt me to burn
can't pretend
we condemn
can't pretend

I feel innocent with sunken smiles now
One last moment with you
Fly my delusioned angel
Higher than sleepless weather
Tainted point of view

Seems like a whirl wind in my head
Take me to distantly I fled

Seems like a whirl wind in my head
Take me to distantly I fled
Can't pretend

I feel innocent with sunken smiles now
One last moment with you
Fly my delusioned angel
Higher than sleepless weather
Tainted point of view

Killing it for you
killing it for you
killing it for you
killing it for you
for you
for you

    General CommentRight Well, Rusted visionary. (Shelby)


    I love this song because, Whenever I hear it, It reminds me of memories from around winter last year.
    My family and I were travelling to Manchester airport, it was very cold and early. But the taxi window
    was steamed up, and to pass the time we started randomly doodling on the window, anything from hearts to
    even playing noughts and crosses, so I always smile if I hear ' breathe hearts on frosty windows, only fools wait until they melt' cause the memories make me laugh so much. Unfortunatley we weren't fools cause we couldn't wait long enough, we had a plane to catch ;)

    I also like 'I feel innocent with sunken smiles now, one last moment with you.' It kind of relates to a friend I have, who moved abroad to Thailand, (Luckily she's moving back in April) and before she moved, We had a mawhoooosive party, to celebrate her birthday, pie fights, paint bombs, water fights, and a jacuzzi that turned bright red cause of all the paint bombs! - good memories. great song. what more could you need? :)

    General Comment...this song is about how some of us focus in on the destination instead of the journey...i know i do the same thing...we think to ourselves, "i'm going to do this, so that this will happen.", but we never think, "i wonder what i'll have to do to get this done."...it's along the same line as paging through catalogs with no intent of buying the products...we just stare at yearned-for items and dream...that's what i think this song means. Its about letting go and being in the moment.

    Breathe hearts on frosty windows
    Only fools wait till they melt
    Maybe, maybe, maybe

    my first thought was, 'this song is about heaven.'
    "Crushed iris (closing eyes) dusky colours" would be, well, death.
    "One last moment with you
    Fly my delusioned angel"

    but the more i listen, i have to think it about 'flying' right here. 'higher than sleepless weather' yet in our atmosphere. right here where you can love and be loved by others, and by the sun ...and be clean and new, and even in the dirt find something of more value than what might be obvious. you have to dig for it with your bare hands.

    and i think he's dreaming of one day escaping to this place, where he can be new again, where he can fly higher than sleepless weather, where his thoughts lie. but for now he's got to reserve his thoughts and focus on finding a way out 'killing it for you.' she will take him there.

    I feel innocent with sunken smiles now
    One last moment with you
    Fly my delusioned angel
    Higher than sleepless weather
    Tainted point of view

    ...saying that he sends his wishes/thoughts/dreams/etc. into the future, instead of thinking about the path he'll have to travel to get to them...
