Holy girl
Don't get up
For running

Stay with me
I feel sad
When you run

Sands of time
Are lying
On my chest

Stay in bed
I feel sad
When you run

Stay like this
On the hills
Of my chest

Don't wake up
I feel strange
When you go

Stop the night
Hold me tight
Holy girl

Don't stand up
I feel strange
When you go

    General Commenthe doesn't want the holy girl to go, it makes him feel strange/sad. Why does he know that he will be feeling strange/sad? maybe because she is gone far to often?
    After my break-up, (my holy-girl left me) I was able to drown myself in this song(in a good way)...

    Dunno about you lot, but this song makes me shiver.

    General Commenti think the female sounding vocal layers may possibly represent angels voices, as the words "holy girl" may suggest,
    and therefore the subject may feel like this experience is of purity, the supreme point of his existence, which he is clinging to like the "sands of time"

    General Commenti guess love can be very spiritual, if he refers to her as a holy girl. intense.
    and since it's kinda hard to sing to, it makes it one of those songs you just have to listen to. air is good driving music while driving through open spaces/the coast.
    this song works perfectly in the french film Lila Says.

    General CommentI think this song is definitely "haunting" but hardly "romantic." Why would his holy girl reciprocate this love by running?

    These sound more like the delusional thoughts of someone who has abducted a girl he practically worships.

    General CommentThis song is so haunting, I love it, especially at the parts where he repeats "run run run run" over and over somewhere a minute into the song.

    General Commentmy favorite air song. "sands of time, are lying, on my chest."
    it makes me feel so free. clears my mind.

    General CommentSuch a therapeutic song. I'm from America, where most popular music is filled with sexism, hate, and extreme ignorance. It's nice to know that there are people in the world still writing music with class. Awesome song - contemporary, cute, tasteful, a little haunting, and very true.
