    You were crying And the rain mixed with your tears A bright light dying A kinder heart never to be broken A short reach across the table Just as far as oceans span the sea It's just as hard to reach you As for you to reach for me This pleasant scent Undeserving in such a setting F...

    So what if I'll never be perfect? For so long I wondered what that meant. Now I can see there is no such thing And I can accept that with a smile So what if I'll never be whole? You have given me strength enough To pull myself together Tired of running I let you catch me And y...

    But it's nothing unheard It's nothing undeserved It's nothing you haven't been through first Before there were three To me there was one I guess some things never change But still something seem so strange All alone Who breaks? Seeing your words Is like hearing your...

    At some point I should probably stop writing about you A passive-obsessive pastime I could find better Or different Subject matter But I find it hard to make anything else matter It's been almost a year Since the date I don't remember Or really care to, either And yet I can r...

    At first it was noble My strength in the face of your pain And your face against my chest Eventually, it was sad A lack of strength, you were crying again And my hands on your chest Sometimes, it was fitting It wasn't your first time And after a while I forgot mine Above al...

    “Your body is a wonderland” We both hated that song But it does make me wonder and It always really did And really it's true Now that I think about it Though not in the way That John meant it I presume But in that It's full of places One shouldn't go But one ventures a...

    What does it matter when "I'm only 16 and they never work and there'll be others" It's been a while since I wrote that Many months have passed me by True enough, there have been others. But they couldn't hold my time. I told myself it wasn't you It was ...

    What would you say if you read all this? I often ask just that. On one hand I desperately want you To read it, that is. But on the other hand I know better You probably wouldn't like it much. And I don't blame you. Maybe I should just get rid of it But You wouldn't li...

    How could your paradigm shift so much? As to throw me all the way off. Maybe I just tripped and fell Or maybe Someone else bumped into it And knocked me off And your hand Was too busy in his To help me back up It seems it tilted All the way To show another side Of you One that I hardl...

    'Ladies! All this time i thought you wanted me to be like you. You don't want me to be like you! Now you'll sing for me!” said the man who's no longer interesting. And you were always afraid of that. That I was just like you. But really, I just liked you. But it's funn...

    “If” is such a pretty word It changes all the “woulds” and “shoulds” to “cans” and “wills” And makes our “whys” “Becauses” And changes the whole reason behind things. I can Sit and write: If then, would you? Even though I should But you won't Because you ...

    Three's a crowd And you never liked those much But when you're all alone One of us Could still you whisper And it's a shame Because I always heard you scream Two is just right If the other is just right too Perhaps you've solved that puzzle And I'm just missing y...

    I entertain the notion of leaving For a day or for a year Is really no matter to me The idea of a wandering star entertains me Orbiting your thoughts But never quite landing Or at least not long enough To hold your attention Or your hand Until the day That you notice your satellite missing...

    I'm hesitant to write this review because I don't know if words can do justice to Alcest, the solo project by French musician Neige. In fact, I'm certain I can't, but I will try anyway, because if even one person reads this and decides to look up the music, I'll have made th...
