“I Would…” [new song video]

Posted on

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #53: “I Would…”. Here is a new song which speaks of immersive, what I call “holistic” love in a way which transcends mere infatuation, showing how a real sexual relationship involves not just the physical but the whole person. I hope it moves you. Here are the lyrics:

I would bathe me in your blood
if you were real.
And spectators, please don’t
hold me by my heel.
For no portion must be spared
and I give my ‘all’ right there.
Such completion is the spark
which one must feel.

I would dive me in your soul
if you were here.
In that heart of yours
I’d gladly disappear.
Till there’s nothing of me left —
only ‘us’, the warp and weft.
In that cleft of yours there’s nought
for me to fear.

[Refrain]
For the time comes when there’s
nothing left to lose.
Then without that other soul
life makes no sense.
This collision is not something
which you choose.
It can only come when there’s
no more pretence.

I would hurl me in your arms
from altitude.
Then, within them, all my storms
would be subdued.
And I know that yours would too;
we would be each other’s glue.
In our symbiotic world
we’d be renewed.

I would drown me in your dreams
if I was there.
In your reveries, I’d be
your ‘everywhere’.
There would be no place untouched;
many worlds we could construct.
For the walls dissolve when both
are self-aware.

[Refrain]
For the time comes when there’s
nothing left to lose.
Then without that other soul
life makes no sense.
This collision is not something
which you choose.
It can only come when there’s
no more pretence.

I would lay me in your bed
of death and life.
There would be no need to call us
‘man and wife’.
For we’d be conjoined as one;
burned and melted by the Sun.
There would be the joy of
endless sacrifice.

I would walk me down the plank
of Neptune’s boat.
For I know you’d be my
drowning’s antidote.
Now if only you were real,
there’d be grounds for what I feel;
but upon the Brindley Brine
my corpse does float.
