LILA IN MY ARMS
Faded charcoal drawing on a brown paper bag of a couple dancing, one pointing away. Slightly ripped with the trace of a dirty snowy footprint.

lyrics

i see fragments of a wise old relationship flash through my memories

... farmhouses and trees
appear and dissappear with uniform precision
she points to something
out in the distance
that neither of us can see
but she describes its beauty
i stare at her finger, fool that i am
but i just love this now, this here, this you
lila in my arms
lila in my arms

i see fragments of an inverted relationship flash through my memories

... i picture you with a jug of glühwein
and tinsel in your hair or at least a red ribbon
drifting through the viennese marketplace
snow dancing in your wake
you move through the fair
and me lost somewhere
in a cold wet north
wandering a wilderness, blinded by a vision of you
blinded by a vision of you
blinded by a vision of you
lila on my mind

i see fragments of a wild unfounded relationship flash through my memories

i died from not being able to meet you again
or forget that you exist
... when we were but a breath apart
i realised what beauty could be
and that night as i beckoned you closer and pushed you away
i saw we were the same - i paused on a forever
and was scared when you were in my arms
this was truth - you were real - you are
lila in my arms
