“I wrote this for a baby Who has yet to be born My brother's first child I hope that womb's not too warm Cause it's cold out here And it'll be quite a shock To breathe this air To discover loss So I'd like to make some changes Before you arrive So when your new eyes meet mine They won't see no lies Just love. Just love.”

Bright Eyes - No Lies, Just Love

"It's just lately I've been feeling like I don't belong, like the ground's not mine to walk upon.  And I've heard that music echo through the house where my grandmother drank by herself.  And I sat watching a flower as it was withering.  I was embarrassed by its honesty.  So, I'd prefer to be remembered as a smiling face, not this fucking wreck that's taken its place."

Bright Eyes - No Lies, Just Love

It was in the march of the winter I turned seventeen. And I bought those pills I thought I would need. I wrote a letter to my family, it said “It’s not your fault, you’ve been good to me. It’s just lately I’ve been feeling like I don’t belong. Like the ground’s not mine to walk upon. And I’ve heard that music echo through the house, when my grandmother drank by herself.”
And I sat watching a flower as it was withering, I was embarrassed by its honesty. So, I’d prefer to be remembered as a smiling face, not this fucking wreck that’s taken its place. So please forgive what I have done, no you can’t stay mad at the setting sun because we all get tired, I mean eventually, there is nothing left to do but sleep.
Spring came bearing sunlight, those persuasive rays. So I gave myself a few more days. My salvation, it came quite suddenly when Justin spoke very plainly. He said “Now of course it’s your decision, but just so you know, if you decide to leave, then soon I will follow.”
I wrote this for a baby who is yet to be born. My brother’s first child. I hope that womb’s not too warm because it’s cold out here, and it will be quite a shock to breathe this air, to discover loss. So I’d like to make some changes before you arrive so that when your new eyes meet mine, they won’t see no lies, just love. Just love. I will be pure. No, no, I will be pure. Like snow, like gold.
