Come to my Window

Sunday, March 26, 2006
i would dial the numbers
just to listen to your breath
and i would stand inside my hell
and hold the hand of death
you don't know how far i'd go
to ease this precious ache
you don't know how much i'd give
or how much i can take
just to reach you ...

come to my window
come on inside
come to the light of the moon
come to my window
i'll be home soon

keeping my eyes open
i cannot afford to sleep
giving away promises
i know i cannot keep
nothing fills the blackness
that has seeped inside my chest
i need you in my blood
i am foresaking all the rest
just to reach you

written by Melissa Etheridge

this is how i felt a lot in my 20s - i like this song, it describes the longing i felt so clearly. longing for what? a person? i don't know. just a longing.

I don't know which is worse: longing for something/someone your not sure of, or finding them and losing them, and then longing to catch that moment when you were finally free from the longing. To capture it and lose yourself in it.

I love Melissa Ethridge. This song, and "Baby you can sleep while I drive."
