Pieces of songs by the band “Sleeping at Last” (I like to call them “blanket songs,” because I just want to wrap myself up in the music and sit there like that forever)

Sleeping at Last has a song dedicated to each planet and they’re all so beautiful…all of the ones that I have heard.  I haven’t listened to them all yet, but I look forward to doing so…  Here are pieces of some that have struck a chord with me (no pun intended):

From “Saturn”

“How rare and beautiful it is to even exist…I tried to write it down but I could never find a pen…I’d give anything to hear you say it one more time- that the universe was made just to be seen by my eyes.”  

From “Neptune”

“It was a stained glass variation of the truth..”

“I’m only honest when it rains.  

If I time it right, the thunder breaks when I open my mouth.  

I wanna tell you, but I don’t know how…  

I’m only honest when it rains-

an open book with a torn out page, and my ink’s run out.  

I wanna love you but I don’t know how.  

I don’t know how.”

From “Mercury”

“I am dissonance waiting to be pulled swiftly into tune.”
