some desired doll

Lyrics:
Come on, angel
Come and save us
Let me see sunrise
Give me something
For the one thing we immortalized
Gaze upon you
Turning into some desired doll
I’ll be there to come and shake you
When your will dissolves
My love
Come out of the woods
Come out of the woods
Now darling
We’re out of the woods
We’re out of the woods
You’re safe in my mind
Some antiquated tune
In my heart some ancient song
A song too blue to even use
Come on inside, it’s a long ride
’80s limousine
I’ll be tongue tied, you’ll be cross eyed
On the grainy screen
With a token appreciation
Amateur cigar
Steel plated, silver painted
Novelty guitar
For you, well
Isn’t it good and isn’t it shit
They lured us away from the beach
And onto the cruise ship
I lied, I lied
And never grew
To be made a lonely child
The seven rules you need to know
In my mind
Some antiquated tune
In my heart some ancient song
A song too blue to even use
I remember the beat
And the sound of the bass
When you played all alone
Every possible dream
In the head that you held
And the hands that you hold
I remember the beat
And the sound of the bass
When you played all alone
Every possible dream
In the head that you held
And the hands that you hold
Da da da da da da
Da da da da da
Da da da da da

    1. Rachel!! My dearest darlingest.

      You should know I put that music box gif there for you, specifically. I’d been writing poetry on and off this afternoon and realized the Metric song had a very soft, spiraling sort of movement to it. Especially toward the end, with the lines:

      I remember the beat
      And the sound of the bass
      When you played all alone
      Every possible dream
      In the head that you held
      And the hands that you hold
      Da da da da da da
      Da da da da da
      Da da da da da

      So. I thought to myself, hmm if I were a music box dancer, I’d want this song to play.

      Which then reminded me of you. The original and most beautiful music box ballerina. 🖤🔮🦢🖤
