Bella in New Moon : "Left and Leaving" - The Weakerthans  


My city's still breathing (but barely it's true)
through buildings gone missing like teeth.
The sidewalks are watching me think about you,
sparkled with broken glass.
I'm back with scars to show.
Back with the streets I know
Will never take me anywhere but here.
The stain in the carpet, this drink in my hand,
the strangers whose faces I know.
We meet here for our dress-rehearsal to say " I wanted it this way"
Wait for the year to drown.
Spring forward, fall back down.
I'm trying not to wonder where you are.
All this time lingers, undefined.
Someone choose who's left and who's leaving.
Memory will rust and erode into lists of all that you gave me:
a blanket, some matches, this pain in my chest,
the best parts of Lonely, duct-tape and soldered wires,
new words for old desires,
and every birthday card I threw away.
I wait in 4/4 time.
Count yellow highway lines that your relying on will lead you home.

Found this song on my iPod... no idea where I got it, but it's so Bella post-breakup it's kind of ridiculous. Maybe it's just me, but even if it is, this song is my newest New Moon anthem.

Just thought I'd share.

Feedback? :)

This is BEAUTIFUL - I wish the DCFC song had been more like this. I'm adding this to my ipod right now :)
