This is a song that is as of yet untitled (if anyone has any ideas for a title, I'd love to hear them). I'd really like to hear any reactions, critiques, suggestions, etc. Anything from specific words or phrases that work especially well/badly to suggestions for huge, sweeping changes is welcome. Right! The lyrics:
All long-cut dip and short-cut shrift
A shortcut trip to a year you won't replay.
You tried and trolled, you plied, extolled
He never told you he loved you. Anyway,
Let's go astray, let's lose our way,
And let me say that you're looking pretty.
Nights drenched in opalescent light,
A sight extinct in this lucent city
And we'll accrue in-jokes in slews,
Confuse the sh-t out of strangers in strange bars
And day to day the moon will fade
Its light mislaid will unroll arrays of stars
We'll stay in days
Stare at shifting sheets of grey
And propose that "I daresay
That the world might wash away."
And we keep our secret selves hidden safely
In our pockets with our wallets and our hands
And our fashion sense is sensibly impractical and
Our poems like to laugh.
...yeah, I'm an English major.
