I want to see your goodness around me
but it's got the properties of water
transparent as glass

your goodness is coiled like a fist
holed up in the back of the attic
crouched like a cat

you said I look like a stone sinking
but I am a constellation cut out in the sky
and if I have stopped burning
will you know in your lifetime?
and should I feel cold and far?
and should I feel weightless?

I imagine safety in the stars
'cause you make so many wishes
do you ever hear what the stars are saying to you?

    General Commenteverything about any Rainer Maria song is just immensely impressive, but the guitar in this song completely amazes me every time.

    General CommentThe Seven sisters is a constelation is the pleates (i have no idea how to spell it but it sounds like that) anyways there are seven stars there, and one of them is Electra, my best friends name, and she is going to get a tatoo of the constelation and if she has a daughter she's going to name it one of the stars in the constelation.
    So ya this is her new them song, i thought it was really cool when i found it cause she's always talking about it
