this is the chandelier swing

watch you sleeping
try hard not to walk away
cause i haven't got anything to say
when you wake
with nothing in our heads
but an idea
of what we should be
what we could be

swing closer

catching ourselves
from close up
i think we're the same
and we've met our match

the chandelier swing

so cover yourself with whatever
cover your eyes
cause it's not right
you say "it's not what it should be"
but it could be
you know i think a lot like you

swing away

it's not like you had before
when you were two years younger
my age
i wait for you

    General CommentIt broke my heart to watch the Braid DVD / documentary. On one of their last shows, they let their merch guy get on the walkie and say "This is the chandelier swing." Broke my damn heart and I cried because I wished it'd been me.

    And what am I left with now? All the mp3s and Bob Nanna's Twitter and myself.
    I don't even have my copy of the Braid DVD because someone stole it.
