Wind and Sea
I put this mix together a month ago. Never thought it sounded right until I listened to it yesterday. The intro is a mesh of lyrics from the songs; I didn’t feel like writing my story, so I used them to create one.
I’ve got a thick tongue, brimming with the words that go unsung. It seemed like the real thing, but I was so blind. You’re up; I’m down. You’re blind; I see. I don’t fit in, so why do you want me?
I can’t help myself, lost inside adorable illusion. Simmer for someone, the wrong one. I know that I am diving into my own destruction.I’m all messed up. I’m out of line. You’ll just throw away every word I say; you can throw away everyone word I say.
Find myself choking on all of my contradictions. I think we’re like fire and water. I think we’re like the wind and sea. I suppose that’s just the way it is.
I’m giving it my all, but I’m not the girl you’re taking home. Oh, I wish you wanted me to stay. You’ll never know how it makes me blue. I just keep dancing on my own.
