about

This is one of the first complete songs I every wrote. There's an earlier version of it that's a lot sloppier, a lot slower, and has me playing everything on it. Sometimes I like that one better than this.

lyrics

As I listen to your heartbeat, I'm reminded of my hands scratching out your name in the sand.
And as the tide rolls in I remember that this is only temporary. A spike in your prime of life.

And I can't reconcile the pounding in my head with the nothing in your heart.
And I can't stop this now even if it'd be easier not to start.

I think I've listened for the last time to your voice murmur out my name in the dark.
And your hand doesn't wander anymore.
Cause you're not here. Not in spirit, and I'm pretty sure I don't feel your body too.
But I remember what it was like to fall down next to you.

And I don't have the answers to all the questions that you asked.
So you're looking somewhere else, and I don't blame you.
And even if all of this is safely buried in the past, I wouldn't blame you for trying - I know that I would too.

I think I've buried my resentment by your name in the sand.
And now there's nothing left to do but spin around and hold out my hand, in hopes that someone else might happen by.
Stranger things have happened, and I think you know that's true.

limesix Orlando

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
