"Bubble" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
I know I don't know you
I know that we don't think along the same lines
But what do I do when I can't reach out
Through this iron built bubble of pain

Your house settled in deep country
With acres and a farm and a stream to cleanse me
Your house with a view of purity
Overlooks a hillside of green, green as your eyes

I embrace the moment, I'm in love with a dream
And toy with ideas that burn deep inside me
?Cause a picture is all you are to me
A picture is all you'll ever be

I know you don't know me
A nervous, wordless face brings shade to your light
But I want so bad to walk beside you
But fall back into a world where I believe

I embrace the moment, I'm in love with a dream
And toy with ideas that burn deep inside me
Because a picture is all you are to me
A picture is all you'll ever be

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautiful and saddest songs I have heard. Shamelessly sentimental. A brave song in that respect.
    "...cause a picture is all you are to me
    a picture is all you'll ever be..."

    General CommentSo ridiculously sentimental and sad.

    I mean this lyric:

    "I embrace the moment/I'm in love with a dream"

    Fucking DESTROYS me emotionally.

    General CommentThe iron built bubble of pain may be the platonism he created over this person he will never be with. When he falls back into the world where he believes may be the fact that they are too different from each other, or simply the real world.
