Why are you scared to dream of god when it's salvation that you want?

'Cause I swear that I'm dying, slowly but its happining.

I drink to stay warm, and to kill selected memories...

I believe that lovers should be draped in flowers/ And laid entwined together in a bed of clover/ Left there to sleep/ Left there to dream of happiness.

I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said, 'There's nothing that I can do for you that you can't do for yourself.' He said, 'Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that that would help.' So I sat with him a while then I asked him how he felt. He said, 'I think I'm cured.'

I know a girl who cries when she practices violin because each note sounds so pure it just cuts into her, and then the melody comes pouring out her eyes. Now, to me, everything else just sounds like a lie.

When everything is lonely I can be my best friend.

I really just want to be warm yellow light that pours over everyone I love.

But these are days we dream about, when the sunlight paints us goldAnd this apartment could not be prettier as we danced up there alone.
