It’s all like one vast and manifold contradiction.

The philosopher’s nightmare;

The romantic’s dream.

This is a part of a song I wrote, which I recorded myself at home.

Wrote it quite a while back. It’s about human relationships and how we are so capable of causing pain in so many ways. Sometimes it seems like we can’t win; either we don’t love somebody enough, or we love them too much.

Lyrics:

We always lean

Too close

And we always hold

Too tight

And we always try

Too hard

And we always learn

Too late

And we always run

Too far

And we always look

Too high

—————-

And we always dream

Too big

And we always dig

Too deep

And we always wait

Too long

And we always mean

Too well

And we always love

Too much

And we’ll never know

Just what we could have been

Oh hold me close

Hold me close

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
