I can live forever
I can live forever in a song. Its like heaven, or one of the many ideas of what its like. The right song transports me into another world. It seperates my soul from my mind, and I can feel what I'm thinking. Different from fantasy or dream, its more like a seperate life. That makes little to no sense, but have you ever gotten so into a song you forgot where you were or what you doing. Or played one song over and over again and every syllable, every note, every chord took your breath away. Sometimes I think i've gone mental. But most times I feel remarkably lucky, and wish everyone in the world could let themselves feel the way I feel. No matter what your song is.
Thats my last Duchess painted on the wall,
Looking as if she were alive. I call...
Are you to turn and ask thus. Sir, 'twas not
Her husbands presence only, called that spot...
For calling up that spot of joy. She had
A heart - how shall i say? - too soon made glad
