In one’s eyes you see seas that paint a million emotions: affection, exuberance, gaiety.
More often than not, you would also see the bluesy opposites:
abandon, indifference, distance…
the struggle in their gait, the storm in their mind,
The words “I am just not into you anymore”
never departing their lips. Despite so its gravity never more sonorous,
That ominous moment,
when they turn their head away.
This song expresses the heartquake that follows,
A plasma raging within what’s hollow,
When it used to be full, only a storm of emptiness.
The folksy strum and longing vocal undulations refer to the purity of Eva Cassidy, Don McLean, Joni Mitchell.
From a place that feels like a sea of despair, however, arise the major chords usually indicative of brightness and hope,
As if to convince self, however frailly, that indeed there is, after all, life after love.
Link to the song: Seas in Those Eyes
There is a place -- wide waters without piers Into that space, my heart come storming in. Eyes -- pair of Neptunes I'd dive into, My tanks are empty; I'm finless, determined and pure But hammerhead sharks fill warm waters of your arms An icy maelstrom -- your endless, heady charms... Lost in those eyes, no starlight in those skies Sirens' songs of sweet words, your absence belies Stony, this heart -- de-brained; my wading becomes weak Gurgles get fainter as saltwater replaces my blood Every time you turn away, these seas around me grow colder Every time you disappear on to devour other divers... I will swim to you Keep being drowned in you I'll be here for you But you don't want me to, I will swim to you Keep being drowned in you I'll be here for you But you don't want me to, There is a place -- wide waters, without peace, These asphyxiating depths to forever settle, here. On the horizon, the lighthouse disappears Wish I could recall, when my lungs aren't drenched completely One more time, will I ever again, breathe?
