…and the shadows keep on changing

Reading: “Pride & Prejudice” by Jane Austen

First heard around 1995, played during the ending credits of  “Blair Witch Project: Book of Shadows”. Song “clicked” the first time I heard it.  Like much of everything in my relatively short existence, I have this “once I really like something, I’ll most likely than not like it so long as I lived” mentality. Did you know how long I’ve been a Star Wars fan? No amount of dissing could dissuade me into turning away (my brother even went as far as calling the whole thing a childish drivel, as if he didn’t memorise the entire dialogue of  The Empire Strikes Back at one point, but I’ll shut up now).

Come here
Pretty please
Can you tell me where I am
You won’t you say something
I need to get my bearings
I’m lost
And the shadows keep on changing

And I’m haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I’m haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

I’m haunted
By the promises I’ve made
And others I have broken

Don’t cry,
There’s always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves
We’ll pray
Please, I know it’s hard to believe
To see a perfect forest
Through so many splintered trees
You and me
And these shadows keep on changing

Hallways… always

I’ll always want you
I’ll always need you
I’ll always love you

And I will always miss you

Come here
No I won’t say please
One more look at the ghost
Before I’m gonna make it leave
Come here
I’ve got the pieces here
Time to gather up the splinters
Build a casket for my tears
I’m haunted
By the hallways in this tiny room
The echos there of me and you
The voices that are carrying this tune
