[recording on soundcloud] oh it’s only recently become clear to me how completely unprepared i am to even give a smile or hold your hand- oh, i’m lost. why are your words in some foreign language that i simply cannot understand no matter how many times; how many days and weeks and nights i’ve studied […]
something different, something new; i’m seeing sun in different hues but none of them is as bright as you, though you’re not on my mind. wait- i guess that is a lie; because i am thinking of you. but not the way i usually do- no, this time it’s something new.
