Saturn by Sleeping at Last

https://youtu.be/dzNvk80XY9s

SATURN by Sleeping at Last


you taught me the courage of stars before you left. 
how light carries on endlessly, even after death. 
with shortness of breath, you explained the infinite. 
how rare and beautiful it is to even exist.


i couldn’t help but ask 
for you to say it all again. 
i tried to write it down 
but i could never find a pen. 
i’d give anything to hear 
you say it one more time, 
that the universe was made 
just to be seen by my eyes.


i couldn’t help but ask 
for you to say it all again. 
i tried to write it down 
but i could never find a pen. 
i’d give anything to hear 
you say it one more time, 
that the universe was made 
just to be seen by my eyes.


with shortness of breath, i’ll explain the infinite- 
how rare and beautiful it truly is that we exist.

Lyrics: 


FOUR by Sleeping at Last


i’m turning out the lights
to remember how to see
until a renaissance takes place
and resuscitates the color of paint and divinity


as if God hid the building blocks
of every beautiful thing
in this game of hide and seek
i can’t help but think that ordinary has swallowed the key


bodies fashioned out of dirt and dust
for a moment we get to be glorious
ice sculptures adorned in light
sand castles built tall in between the tides


maybe i’m hiding behind metaphor
maybe my heart needs to break to be sure
one day i’ll wear it all on my sleeve
the insignificant with the sacred unique


but i’ve fallen in love with a ghost
and i lost my balance when i needed it most
this blurry photograph is proof
of what i’m not sure but it feels like truth


i’m stuck swimming in shadows down here
it’s been forever since i came up for air
flashlight in hand determined to find
authenticity only poetry could even begin to try to describe


bodies fashioned out of dirt and dust
for a moment we get to be glorious


what if we already are
who we’ve been dying to become
in certain light i can plainly see
a reflection of magnificence
hidden in you
maybe even in me
