This is my excavation

23 August 2011 § Leave a comment

I’ve been lost in For Emma, Forever Ago for a while. The difference a pair of headphones makes, good ones that let you hear everything. I hadn’t listened to it too much, even though I’ve had the digital album for a while now. I bought a vinyl of Vernon’s second album, Bon Iver, Bon Iver. It has been sitting in my meager record collection for a week now, maybe two. I wanted to listen to Emma first. But like I said, I got lost in the nine tracks.

Maybe by the end of this week I’ll get to spin it. Until then….

Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in the moment this order’s tall

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
And in the morning I’ll be with you
But it will be a different kind
And I’ll be holding all the tickets
And you’ll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love, what happened here?
Suckle on the hope in light brassieres
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
And now all your love is wasted
And then who the hell was I?
And I’m breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?

Someday my pain, someday my pain
Will mark you
Harness your blame, harness your blame
And walk through

With the wild wolves around you
In the morning, I’ll call you
Send it farther on

Solace my game, solace my game
It stars you
Swing wide your crane, swing wide your crane
And run me through

And the story’s all over you
In the morning i’ll call you
Can’t you find a clue when your eyes are all painted Sinatra blue

What might have been lost –
Don’t bother me
