"The Romance of the Telescope" as written by and Paul David/mc Cluskey Humphreys....
See these arms that were broken, how they held you so.
Never once did they fail you, they won't let you go.

We're just waiting looking skyward as the days come down.
Someone promised there'd be answers, if we stayed around.

Over decades, now this romance has sustained us all.
Never questioned, only giving what it made us for.

    MemoryHeartbreak as direct as it comes. The concilliatory beat and chord give wings to the pain. These broken arms, they won't let you go. Can't you hear it? Over decades now the romance has sustained us all. There will be answers. There must be. So rarely did it question itself, so often did it question who we were becoming through it. So many times we were left with an understanding of the circumstances that brought us here, but not closer to truth, or beauty. You want the latter. I wanted the conditions in which beauty and truth could take hold of you. But you won that fight.
