Joanna Newsom – Emily Lyrics 14 years ago
I can't believe no-one has commented.

"anyhow, I sat by your side, by the water
you taught me the names of the stars overhead that I wrote down in my ledger
though all I knew of the rote universe were those pleiades loosed in december
I promised you I‘d set them to verse so I'd always remember

that the meteorite is a source of the light
and the meteor's just what we see
and the meteoroid is a stone that's devoid of the fire that propelled it to thee

and the meteorite's just what causes the light
and the meteor's how it's perceived
and the meteoroid's a bone thrown from the void that lies quiet in offering to thee"

that is one of the most beautiful things in the world. without a doubt

Songs: Ohia – Lioness Lyrics 14 years ago
this is his response/imagined situation of a poem written by Gwen Harwood called The Lion's Bride.
the Lion has a feeder who he loves, and thinks she loves him, then one day she comes into the cage with her wedding dress on, and the lion thinks she's a ghost, so he kills her as a meal for his 'bride' who ironically he just killed.
he told me so once.
