"The Shadow That Looms O’er My Heart"

What is it lately?
I can’t get out of bed
Can’t stop saying
That everything good is dead
Where did you go
My blue-green arrow
My sweet singing sparrow
with your anti-lullaby
with your claws scraping off the shadow
the shadow that looms o’er my heart

Dear darkroom
I needed you in middle school
to build up the endless tetrises
to caress so many idle breasts
to get lost in your thoughts with my hands on your head, with your feet at my head, with your knees on my chest

and now I can’t see past it
an everlasting malaise
a darkness
unless I can flip
the lightswitch

let the light flood in
let the light flood in
let the light flood in
let the light flood in
let it shine all in
let the bright sun in
let it blind me and
let the fight begin

Hey Everyone,

It’s looking likely that this short film I scored will win the YouTube audience award at Sundance this year. If you have any time today to watch at least part of it, please do (every view gets us a little closer to the honor and the glory). Ten minutes long, the sweetest kids acting in it, tons of friends involved in making it…

"Keep It Inside"

thought i’d be going on by now
with a love for you that’s true somehow
and you’d be screaming at me, screaming at me:
don’t stop
don’t stop
don’t stop
don’t stop

now where did all those good looks go?
my effervescent charm and glow?
the poetry escapes me
and i can see you turning
i can see you turning

all those feelings that you hide, that burn you alive
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside

your throat goes dry and you’re buried alive
in your dreams when you die, gotta keep it inside
cry, cry, no reason why
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside
every lie, every last sigh
everything that’s denied, gotta keep it inside…

thought i’d be further along
doing something that i knew was wrong
and you’d be blowing on my neck
and i’d be running out of breath
don’t stop
don’t stop
don’t stop
don’t stop
and where did all those good times go?
the valley of tomorrow
I’ll keep waiting for you
i’ll keep waiting for you

in every little heaven
every last woman
every depression  
every last rejection
the good luck i’m missing
everything that i’m missing
(such a beautiful woman)
afraid of what i’m thinking
everything i’m dreaming
all of our children
all of our chil-

all those feelings that you hide, that burn you alive
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside

your throat goes dry and you’re buried alive
in your dreams when you die, gotta keep it inside

all those feelings that you hide, that burn you alive
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside
your throat goes dry and you’re buried alive
in your dreams when you die, gotta keep it inside
cry, cry, no reason why
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside
every lie, every last sigh
everything that’s denied, gotta keep it inside

"Carry The One"

I shut my eyes I fell asleep
the milky water thick and deep
a dark room on the ocean floor
a loom a broom a hidden door
an overgrown path
a faded photograph
a weeping stone

I’ll carry the waves in my hands
you carry my heart in yours
I’ll carry the waves in my hands
You carry the one

every flood multiplies until it divides
and every stone i add gets subtracted
everyone i’ve ever loved
everyone i’ve ever loved
gets washed away

I’ll carry the waves in my hands
you carry my heart in yours
I’ll carry the waves in my hands
You carry the one

"Olga Kurylenko"

Marion (mascara on)
As-tu inventé ce chanson?
Sleepless nights,
Constellations
En orbite dans ma tête
Around a dying sun…

Tes yeux dans ma chambre
Ta corps dans l’écran
Ta voix dans mon couer
It’s my stars I cannot stand

I can feel my heart breakin’ in two pieces
One for you, one for them
Wasted
4am

Like a shooting star burns to explode
The black hole that used to be my soul
Waitin’, takin’ in nothin’

Olga Kurylenko
Naked in a row
Show me your lullaby
Before I burn and die

Like a shooting star burns to explode
The black hole that used to be my soul
Waitin’, takin’ in nothin’
"BEYOND THE LENS"
i never quite fit in
always wore the wrong grin
the wrong words, the wrong clothes, 
the wrong hair, the wrong nose
terrified of what you might do
if i ever got up the courage to…
baby, look 
deep into my eyes 
maybe you should lie down,
maybe you are getting tired
i could be your friend 
i could be your savior
but beyond the lens 
i am something more sinister
i’ve spent some time looking at your page
the photos, the comments, the updates…
i know your birthday, counted your friends
now all i need is a sign from you and some confidence
why won’t you love me? 
everybody love me all right?
i need somebody to love me, love me tonight
baby, look 
deep into my eyes       
maybe you should lie down,
maybe you are getting tired
i could be your friend
i could be your savior
but beyond the lens 
i am something more sinister
